rita's mom's daughter's over the phone quick pasta e fagioli

This one was a quickie over the phone, long distance.


3 T olive oil
4 small ripe Italian plum tomatoes, chopped up
1/4 c finely chopped celery and carrots (supermarket salad bar!)
1 19oz can white kidney beans (cannellini) (blend 1/4 can to mush)
salt to taste
garlic salt (touch)
ground red pepper (touch)
freshly grated parmesan cheese
when served, abundant
1/4 lb broken spaghetti


  1. Sauté the celery, carrots, ant tomatoes in a large pot for 5 minutes or so.
  2. Dump in the mushed beans and continue another 5 minutes.
  3. Add remaining beans and broken pasta (about 1/4 lb for 2? broken in several inch lengths at most) and continue adding boiling water now and then like the risotto ritual to keep the stuff flowing and cook the pasta.
  4. After about 15 minutes it should be about done. Stir a lot.


  1. Feeds 2 hungry people.
