1.5 CUP FROZEN CUT ITALIAN GREEN BEANS
1.5 STALK MINCED CELERY
12 CLOVES MINCED GARLIC

1.5 CUP SMALL SHELL PASTA
SMALL JAR CAPERS
2 CUPS TOTAL, DICED PEPPERS, GREEN, RED, YELLOW
I PACKAGE MUSHROOMS
 
 
ABOVE IS THE CLASSIC RECIPE.
HERE ARE MY SHORTCUTS:
 
USE ITALIAN SEASONING FOR ALL SPICES; WORKS FINE
GET SHREDDED CARROTS IN PRODUCE DEPARTMENT, USE WHOLE SMALL PACKAGE
USE WHOLE PACKAGE FROZEN ITALIAN CUT GREEN BEANS
USE BOTTLED GARLIC FROM SMALL CONTAINERS; DELI AREA, ONE TEASPOON = ONE CLOVE
SKIP WATER; JUST USE WHOLE CANS OF BEANS, TOMATOES, THEN RINSE CAN LIGHTLY, ADD THAT
SKIP PASTA, NOT NEEDED
 
 
 
PLACE OLIVE OIL INTO HUGE POT, HEAT ON MEDIUM
SAUTE ONIONS
CELERY
GARLIC 
GREEN BEANS 
ZUCCHINI
FOR A BIT,  ADDING ITALIAN SEASONING, SALT, BLACK PEPPER
THEN
JUST START THROWING IT ALL IN
 
BRING TO BOIL, REDUCE TO SIMMER FOR 20-30 MINUTES
 
FABULOUS!
