I found this recipe of my Grandma's in my Mom's notebook and rechecked with my sister as many of the instructions weren't in "cookbook language" and sounded as if they were spoken! Here in the East, it's easy to find all kinds of small pasta variations, but any (including elbows) can be used. I love this meal, but my Mom talked about herself being a little girl and crying when it was served for dinner!
Pasta e fagioli or pasta fagioli, meaning "pasta and beans", is a traditional meatless Italian dish. Like many other Italian favorites including pizza and polenta, the dish started as a peasant dish, due to being composed of inexpensive ingredients. Today it can be widely found, even in restaurants that do not specialize in Italian cuisine. It is often pronounced "pasta fazool" in the United States.
