This recipe is easy and fast. It is really good. I added 2 teaspoons of Italian season to it. And I used drained and rinsed chili beans. Gave it really good flavor. We cooked ours little without the pasta to get our vegetables cooked.

Great recipe, very easy. My 2.5 year old was able to help with some of the prep (as well as counting and stacking the cans). One change that I made was to add a 15 ounce can of kidney beans (rinsed and drained).
