We chopped up 1 pepper, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 sticks of celery, and half an onion.
All this we mixed up in the slow cooker with 2 cans of red kidney beans, 1 can of canellini beans, 1 big can of crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, dried basil, dried oregano, and 1 of the small cans worth of water. We turned the beast to low for 8 hours +, went to school, work, gymnastics, etc., and ate.
A loaf of bread and Tabasco sauce added the right flair. Not bad. Right?!
