  • Boil water for pasta and cook pasta
  • In another pan: Heat olive oil and cook onion and garlic in until both are soft
  • Add can of stewed tomatoes – stir for 2 minutes
  • Add 1/2 cup water (add more water if needed)
  • Add peas (frozen or canned; if you use canned be sure to drain them)
  • (you can substitute peas for any kind of beans – this is very good with pork & beans)

  • You can make this as a soup by adding more water and garlic and using less pasta.
