    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.

      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.

      We didn't care for this at all. Too bland.
