Stephanie's Pasta Fazool

This is my little Italian great-nana's recipe. In standard Italian, it is called pasta e fagioli, which means "pasta and beans". Fasul is the Neopolitan Italian pronunciation. In America, it became "fazool". It is a peasant dish and makes a filling hot lunch or dinner for your 3 month pantry supply.

2 T. vegetable oil
2 T. fresh chopped onion or 1 t. dry chopped onion
1 t. minced garlic or 1/2 t. dry minced onion
Crushed hot seed pepper, to taste
15oz can pork 'n beans
8oz can tomato sauce
2 cups dry macaroni noodles
Salt and pepper, to taste
Parmesan cheese, to taste

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and add onion, garlic and hot seed pepper. Fry until golden. Add tomato sauce and pork 'n beans. Heat until hot, adding salt, pepper and Parmesan to taste.

Boil macaroni according to box directions until al dente. Drain.

Combine macaroni with bean sauce and serve immediately.

Serves 4-6
