Pasta e fagioli

Another hearty pasta dish that can be made entirely from things you already have on hand. You can add more tomatoes and broth to make this a soup (a box of frozen spinach is lovely in this, as well), or keep the liquid to a minimum to make this more like a standard spaghetti sauce.

1/4 lb diced bacon
1 chopped med onion
1 diced rib celery
2 diced carrots
3 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb peeled tomatoes
1 qt salted water or broth
1 lb cooked beans, any kind
1/2 lb pasta, any kind

Fry first 5 until onion is golden in butter and oil. Add tomatoes, cook on medium for 40 minutes. Add water, boil, add rest, boil til pasta cooked.
