 Italian Bean Sauce
 1 can of red kidney beans
 1 small can of tomatoe paste
 3 cloves of garlic
 1/2 a white onion
 tsp. of red pepper
 salt if you like
 1 ripe tomatoe
 1 tsp vinegar for sauteing
 In a large skillet saute oinions and garlic in the vinegar.  Let the
 garlic brown and the oinions become translucent.  Add the ripe tomatoe
 in chunks.  Then add 1 can of tomatoe paste.  Add about 1/2 can of
 water to the paste.  Let this get hot and then add the red kidney
 beans.  Let this simmer for a while, like 10 minutes or so.  I use a
 hand blender to puree the mix right in the pan, but for those who
 don't have one, let the mixture cook for 20 minutes and then transfer
 it to a blender a little at a time, and re-cook until all the water is
 boiled off.  With the hand blender, I blend the mix and let it cook
 until it is the consistency I like - thick.  Afterwards, add the red
 pepper and salt.  I spooned this mix over 99% fat-free potatoe
 gnuccies for breakfast this morning.  Yummy.
