ANNIE'S "PASTA FAZOOL"
Primary category: Entrees
Into a 2 quart sauce pan on medium heat add the oil. When the oil is hot add finely chopped garlic. Turn the heat down before the garlic begins to brown. Add the Puree, basil and the salt and pepper. Let the mixture simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Add water to thin (approximately 1 cup). Add the beans, (do not rinse beans), the one thing that sets this recipe apart from others is the baked beans. Let this simmer for another 15 minutes. To this add the cooked ditalini in a large pasta bowl. Garnish with chopped onion, if desired. Another thing mom used to do when this was not served on a Friday, was to brown thin slices of “garlic ring bologna” and place them on top as an additional tasty garnish.
