Every Italian family has its own favorite recipe for pasta e fagioli, or “macaroni and beans,” as my mom called it. This delicious dish is pureed smooth after it’s cooked, and it tastes best with a slice of bread spread with a thin layer of peanut butter—this sounds unusual, but trust me on this one, it is truly wonderful and it’s the way my father-in-law, and now my husband, eats his.
