Pasta with Kidney Beans

Pasta with Kidney Beans

1/2 white onion, diced
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
8 oz can tomato sauce
4 cups water
1/2 lb. small pasta (Ditali)
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Parmesan cheese

Sauté onions in oil until golden. Add the sauce and beans and a little water. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Add the water and salt to taste. Once it comes to a boil, let cook for 15 minutes. Check beans to make sure they are cooked; should no longer be hard. When they feel right, add pasta and cook. The pasta will absorb the water when ready. If water is drying up during cooking, add more boiling water and adjust seasoning. When ready to serve, season with black pepper. Wouldn't be a pasta dish if you didn't add Parmesan cheese!
