Pin or Pass? Pasta e Fagioli

So, if you haven't heard of Pinterest yet you must live under a rock or on a deserted island.  It is one of the latest additions to social networking, a virtual cork board.   Personally, I love it.  It is a great way for me to store and organize all those ideas I was constantly bookmarking on my computer.  Now I can actually find that recipe or craft idea when I want it.  You can check me out on Pinterest HERE.  I have 3,000+ pins, 43 boards and over 250 followers.  Yes, I do like it!
What I have been finding is that you really have to check ins out...first some things you pin will never get you the link you want they are spam or just pinned incorrectly.  So, I do always check the link before pinning.  Second, some pins just don't work they way they say.  So with that in mind I want to start a weekly post about my pins and what I find out when I try them.  And today will be the first.

Pasta e Fagioli 
Today I thought I would start with something simple...a recipe.
Pasta e Fagioli.  This was almost a "no-brainer" once I followed the link...the recipe is a Rachel Ray one.  I have to say this was a very easy soup to make and was delicious.  I did make one small change...The recipe calls of 1 - 18 ounce can of cannellini beans; I used 2 - 15 ounce cans to make the soup a little heartier as we were having it as a meal.  I served it with some crusty sourdough...Deliziosa!

So, Pin or Pass?  Pin, definitely :)
