    Pat McCardle's Note:

    This dish is very economical, fast and really tasty. Made this when I was first married and money was very tight.(we were in the military). I still make it a lot, using different kinds of beans.

      I'm rating with stars because I misread the ingredients and used garlic instead of onion (the kids were screaming). But it was fast and easy and inexpensive and the kiddos liked it! Glad they ate some peas with their pasta.

      Easy & Delicious! I used Fusilli pasta, a whole medium sized onion, frozen peas, couple cloves of garlic (minced), a can of diced tomatoes, and the oregano & basil as written. Turned out great! Will definitely make again.
