I came up with this one day when I was too sick to go to the store, so I just threw together what I had in the house. It turned out so well that I have made it again on other occasions. To make it even more nutritious, you could probably add canned vegetables as well. This is a good basic recipe that is very forgiving of experimentation.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 (15 ounce) can great northern beans (do not drain)
  • 1 (13 ounce) can broth (I used vegetable, but chicken or beef would probably work, too.)
  • 12 cup macaroni
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, bring the broth to a boil.
  2. Add macaroni and cook until almost tender.
  3. Add the beans and the liquid in which they were packed.
  4. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Continue cooking until the macaroni is done.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy!
