Pasta e Fagioli
Pasta Fazzool? This pasta and bean soup in standard Italian is ‘pasta e fagioli’ (fah joh lee). So why do some Italians say fazool? Blame the dialects! Fazool is the southern Italian word for Fagioli, and since a great majority of Italian Americans were from southern Italy, bean & pasta soup is known more as Pasta Fazool rather than pasta e fagioli.
