Great recipe, very easy. My 2.5 year old was able to help with some of the prep (as well as counting and stacking the cans). One change that I made was to add a 15 ounce can of kidney beans (rinsed and drained).

Very good

This recipe is easy and fast. It is really good. I added 2 teaspoons of Italian season to it. And I used drained and rinsed chili beans. Gave it really good flavor. We cooked ours little without the pasta to get our vegetables cooked.
