Pasta e Fagioli

2 T chopped onion
2 minced garlic cloves
1 can canned crushed tomatoes
1 can reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 can white beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
3 cups whole-wheat rotini (or any shaped pasta)
1/8 tsp black pepper

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute 3 minutes, until tender. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, white beans, black beans, pasta and black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 11 minutes or until pasta is tender.

Sometimes, if we are in the mood for it, I also add italian sausage to the pot. It adds some extra spice to the dish.
