Zippy Bean Minestrone
by The Bean Cookbook (I believe it's out of print)

1 can mixed vegetables (drained)
1 jar 15 oz spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
1 can 10.5 oz beef broth (for thinner soup, double the broth)
1 can 16 oz pork and beans (undrained)
1 can 15 oz kidney beans (undrained)
1/2 cup pasta shells (uncooked)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder

In a large non-aluminum pot, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 20 to 25 minutes.  Add water if needed.

This recipe may be made in the crockpot.  Set on low for 2 to 4 hours or set on high until it begins to simmer, then switch to low for an hour or more.

You may have thought this time of year
Meant jellybeans and eggs,
And unsuspecting, fluffy chaps
With furry, hopping legs.

But, here’s the proof
That Easter Bunny’s got a wicked streak.
Don’t reach under that lawn chair
‘til you stop and take a peek.

‘Cause though you may be looking
For those chocolate eggs and loot.
You might just find that morsel there
Is really Bunny Poop!
