Pasta Fazool is an Italian soup with beans and pasta. Some cooks prepare it plain or with sausage. Since we had some leftover taco meat, my soup took on a Mexican flare. With or without meat, this soup makes a great lunch or dinner appetizer.
For years, I made my grilled cheese sandwiches by buttering the outside of the bread, placing the cheese/ham in between, and then putting the entire sandwich on the griddle. It was always tricky to flip the entire sandwich. Now, I grill the bread slices separately add the cheese/ham and then put the sandwich together. Not only is this easier, it is faster.
