This sounds great and I like the beans and two pastas together. I wonder how it would be with a little chopped kale thrown in.

I love pasta fagioli and the burgundy additon sounds like a winner, I have never though to include the wine. Nice.

This looks like a really flavorful pasta fagioli! I also love that you used two kinds of pasta in there, adds a nice contrast :)

I love pasta and fagioli. Sometimes I add a little diced pancetta and brown in the olive oil before adding the rest of the ingredients.
