  • Summary

    Pasta e fagioli is best served immediately, because otherwise the pasta will continue to cook and absorb liquid as it sits. To reheat, add up to 1 cup of water until it's thinned to the desired consistency, then gently warm over medium-low heat. Borlotti beans are also known as cranberry beans.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 pounds large tomatoes (4 to 5), such as beefsteak
    • 1 1/2 cups shelled fresh borlotti beans (from about 1 pound in the pod)
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    • 1 medium onion, diced (about 2 cups)
    • 1 celery stalk, diced (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1 medium carrot, diced (about 1/3 cup)
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
    • 3-inch-long piece Parmesan rind or 1 slice salami
    • 3 sprigs basil
    • 2 cups water
    • 1 cup ditalini pasta
    • Freshly grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese, for serving
