Recipe for Italian-Style Beans And Pasta


1 can garbanzo beans
1 can great northern beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 or 2 cans diced cooked
1 tomatoes
2 large carrots
1 or 2 large onions, chopped
2 to 6 cloves of chopped
1 garlic
2 large carrots, cut in thin strips
2 stalks celery, cut in
1 chunks
3 to 4 heaping tbsps of
1 italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 lb pasta


Saute garlic and onion till soft. Add beans (entire can) and tomatoes and 3 ca ns of water. When hot, add Italian Seasoning. Bring to a boil, then cook till sp ices are well-blended. Add pasta, carrots and celery and cook till pasta is ready - - about ten minutes. Carrots should be slightly crunchy. Adjust seasonings if desired. This makes a thick stew. If you like it wetter, use more water.

I expect you could lower the fat by reducing the amount of beans. This is an adaptation of a recipe calling for sausage and other meat. You can add non-fat Parmesan cheese at the table if you want.

Serves 8 or 9.
