- Remove with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat in the pot.
- Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, sage, rosemary, and parsley to the pot.
- Sweat in the reserved fat just until the vegetables start to become tender.
- Drain the beans and add them to the pot.
- At the same time, add the water.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the beans are almost tender, about 45 minutes.
- Add the tomato paste.
- Continue to simmer until the beans are very tender.
- Remove about half of the soup and pass it through a food mill to purée it.
- Return it to the pot with the rest of the soup.
- Season to taste with salt.
- At this point the soup should be thick but still liquid enough to cook the pasta when it is added.
- If necessary, add a little more water.
- Add the pasta and simmer until it is tender.
- Stir in the reserved pancetta.
- Serve each portion topped with 1 teaspoon cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
- If cranberry beans are not available, use white kidney beans.
