I pared this recipe down from another one on here to suit a faster preparation. This is still wonderful!!! And of course, even better the next day! Any small shape pasta will work - I like the small shells.

I left out the ground beef in order to make this vegetarian, so I added extra beans to the pot. I also used a 19 oz can of tomatoes, so it was a bit to acidic( my fault), so I added 4-5 Tblsp of brown sugar to cut the acidity. I also added corn, peas and carrots to the pot. This was excellent and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe
