Vegetarian  Pasta Fagioli

This easy vegetarian pasta fagioli recipe is hearty, filling and full of bold flavors.  The hearty soup has two kinds of beans, tender pasta, sweet tomatoes and lots of fresh herbs.  And my personal touch, a small chunk of Parmesan rind that slowly dissolves as the soup cooks.
