Spicy Chicken Sausage Pasta e Fagioli
|By :No Pressure Cookbook by Laurel Randolph|
Spicy Chicken Sausage Pasta e Fagioli is my spin on Martha Rose Shulman’s top-notch New York Times recipe that utilizes cooking liquid from the pinto beans to add richness and depth to the soup. Pasta e fagioli translates (as you have probably figured out) to pasta and beans, but it’s more than just a stick-to-your-ribs soup. Spicy sausage, tomatoes, and fresh spinach add tons of flavor.

1 tablespoonoil followed by the sausage. Sauté for 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the sausage and set aside.
1 teaspoonoil, the onion, garlic, and rosemary and sauté for 2 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pot. Turn off the Sauté function. Add the presoaked beans, the bay leaf, and broth. Season with salt and pepper. Secure the lid.
- COOK at high pressure for 10 minutes and use a natural release for 10 minutes followed by a quick release.
- TASTE the beans for doneness. Beans should be firm and creamy, not crunchy. If not tender enough, return to pressure for 3 more minutes. Remove the bay leaf.
- ADD the tomatoes and turn on the Sauté function. Set the lid loosely on top but do not lock. Once boiling, add the macaroni and cook for 7 minutes with the top off or until al dente. Turn off the Sauté function.

- P.S. Leave out the chicken sausage and add
1 teaspoonred pepper flakes for a vegetarian version.
