Another family recipe that I have been making for years. My kids still love it and ask me to make it when they come for a visit.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. :)

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
olive oil
5 clove
garlic, minced
1 can(s)
(28 oz) crushed tomatoes
2 c
water
2
chicken bouillion cubes or 2 pkgs. powder bouillion
1 tsp
oregano, dried
1/8 tsp
black pepper, or to taste
1 can(s)
(16 oz) red kidney beans with liquid
1/2 lb
small or medium shell macaroni

Step-By-Step

1In a large pot, saute garlic in olive oil over low heat (careful not to burn it). Add tomatoes, water, bouillion cubes, oregano and pepper.
2Simmer, covered, 30 minutes on low heat. Add kidney beans with liquid, and cook 5 more minutes.
3Cook macaroni according to pkg. directions, drain well, and add to beans and sauce. (It will be soupy at first, but will dry up a little the longer it sits). We wait 10-15 minutes before serving.

If you are really hungry, you don't have to wait. The taste is the same either way. Enjoy. :)
