This bean and pasta dish is a good choice when time is short.  All
ingredients arc cooked together in one kettle for easy preparation and
clean up.

Saute onions, green pepper and garlic in kettle sprayed with nonfat cooking
spray.  Add tomatoes, kidney beans, pasta shells, water and spices.  Bring
to a boil, cover and simmer until pasta is tender.  Add garbanzo beans and
pepper to taste.  Heat thoroughly.
