I believe that you're thinking of "Pasta Fagioli" (often pronounced
"fa-zool" or "va-zool").

"If you want to look like a proper Italian, ask for Pasta Fagioli, but
pronounce it the east coast incorrect way pasta va-zool. The waiter
won't know what you're saying, but you'll earn points for being third
generation Italian immigrant. "

See other references to these pronunciations on Google:

Various recipes:
RecipeSource: Pasta Fagioli (Pasta Fazool)
Pasta Fagioli (Pasta Fazool)
Pasta e Fagioli ("Pasta Fazool")
Joy'S Pasta Fagioli (Fazool)

search strategy:
"pasta fagioli" ("va zool" OR "fa zool" OR fazool OR vazool)

I hope this helps.  Buon appetito!
