  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large can (approx. 28 ounces) tomatoes, broken up
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 cups cooked small shell or elbow macaroni

Heat olive oil in a heavy kettle or 5-quart Dutch oven; sauté onion and garlic until onion is tender and golden, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, oregano and parsley. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Add cooked macaroni and beans to the tomato mixture, stirring well. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Serve in bowls with a sprinkling of fresh Parmesan cheese, or serve Parmesan cheese on the side.
