This recipe is a favorite! Very quick for those days when you get out of work late. I got this years ago from the back of a Ronzoni pasta box. Now I use Barilla Plus multi grain pasta. Taste the pasta from time to time, the Barilla seems to take a bit longer than the regular elbow noodles. So good! Tastes fantastic with corn bread on the side.

What a great little recipe. So easy. I didn't feel like cooking tonight, but had some some noodles, beans and tomatoes. I did a quick search and found this. It came together so fast and was delicious. I used one can of kidney beans and one can of garbanzo beans and topped with Parmesan cheese. My 4 year old said he liked it, so it's definitely a keeper. Thanks!

OMG..I have been looking for this recipe for years! I, too, got it off the back of a Ronzoni box, sometime in the early 90's. I lost it and was so sad. It is so tasty, and very diet friendly..
