So, I did a a few subs on this. I think I made it more like Pasta Faxanadu! Instead of an anchovy filet (because, let's face it, yuck!) I used an Italian turkey sausage, and to avoid wasting most of a can of tomato paste (I had nothing else planned to use it in) I threw in a whole can instead of just a teaspoon. Vavoom! It was AWESOME! I made my own beans in the crockpot with some chopped red onion added in. AWESOME!!!
Loved it. Easy and quick. Anchovy paste and tomato paste both come in a squeeze tube and last forever. Don't leave the anchovy; it gives a small nutty taste not fishy at all. No one knows it's in there. To add additional protein I cooked some ground turkey and threw it in. My German ancestors taught me to always have some kind of soup on hand at all times--not canned--and no one would go hungry.
This is one of my favorite soups because it's so quick & easy! I usually make 2 or 3 times the recipe because it is SO good on a cold night--or anytime! Thanks Chef John! You're awesome! Btw I get anchovy paste & it keeps forever; it really adds a nice flavor!
Have not tried yet but have a comment. Like others when I buy tomato paste of anchovy filets I use a bit then have to toss the rest when it dries out or spoils. Try anchovy and tomato pastes that come in tubes.
great go to recipe. I like a more brothy soup so I cooked my pasta in boiling water then added to the finished soup. Also I didn't have anchovy on hand so used a small clove of garlic and used some left over marinara sauce instead of paste.
