Step by step

Fry the pancetta with the tomato in a separate pan

To prepare a good meat stock for this recipe, you must start with a pot of cold water into which you add the vegetables, meat and bones. The result will be perfect! If you wish, you can put your pasta and beans in the refrigerator, using an airtight container, and it will keep for up to two days.
The population of Veneto seem to truly appreciate this pasta dish, maybe because their ancestors brought beans from America to Italy, along with many others such as tomatoes, thus establishing itself as a typical recipe of Italian, and particularly Venetian, cuisine.
