Default Slow Cooker Sausage, Bean, Pasta Stew (Pasta Fazul)

I made this and when it was done, I slapped my forehead, realizing it's just Pasta Fazul, which I've made several times and love. Duh!

This is a really easy, hearty, delicious winter dish!


Slow Cooker Sausage, Bean and Pasta Stew
1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 carrots, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 ounces dried white beans, such as cannellini, rinsed and picked over
6 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme, tied with a piece of kitchen twine
1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage links (4 to 6 links)
One 14.5-ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth or stock
One 4 ounce chunk Parmesan rind, optional, plus grated Parmesan, for serving
1/2 cup ditalini pasta
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Crusty bread, for serving

  • Spread the onions over the bottom of a 6- to 7-quart slow cooker and top with the carrots, garlic, white beans, thyme bundle and sausage links. Mix the diced tomatoes with the broth and 3 cups water and pour over the sausages. Add the Parmesan rind if using.
  • Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours; the beans will be tender and begin to fall apart. Uncover the slow cooker, remove and discard the thyme bundle and Parmesan rind and transfer the sausage links to a cutting board. Stir the pasta into the stew and continue to cook, covered, until the pasta is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat. Cut the sausages into bite-size pieces and stir into the stew along with the parsley and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with grated Parmesan on the side for sprinkling on top and crusty bread for soaking up the broth.

There are so many spellings - one never knows what to call it.

We've been having so many beans the past few days I'm growing
early of them but would like to try this soon.

I belong to a few cooking groups on Facebook and one of the gals
is from Boston and doing Boston Baked Beans for Super Bowl, a
tradition she does every time the pats are playing. she adds a smoked
ham shank to the pot with looks fantastic.
