The robust Italian soup called pasta e fagioli is most often served as soupy beans with a small amount of pasta stirred in. As wonderful as it is, sometimes chef David Tanis likes to reverse the order and turn it into a pasta dish smothered in beans. Bean broth and pasta water make the creamy, savory sauce, along with olive oil and a little pancetta.
