  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 oz white wine
  • 4 cups chicken broth I use low-sodium
  • 29 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 14 oz can of Northern White Beans I use low-sodium
  • 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 8 strips Bacon cooked and crumbled - (I buy the boxed version most of the time of convenience) You can use turkey bacon too.
  • 1/2 cup of pepperoni cut into little pieces - (You could use turkey pepperoni as well)
  • 1 lb box of Ditalini pasta


  • Cook Bacon and set aside. Then crumble when cool.
  • In a large pot, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onions are tender.
  • Turn off heat. Add cooking wine, chicken broth, tomatoes and seasonings listed.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add beans, cheese, bacon and pepperoni.
  • Stir and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • You can either mix the pasta in or add into each bowl as wanted. We choose to put the pasta in separate because in my house everyone likes it a little different.
  • You can do the same with the parmesan cheese too. But I do add this into mine.
