Pasta Fazool with Black-Eyed Peas


2 lbs dried Black-Eyed Peas
2-3 Onions
2-3 Garlic cloves
4 Carrots
2 stalks Celery
1 tbsp Basil, dried
1 tbsp Oregano, dried
Hot Sauce or Cayenne Pepper to taste
1 lb Elbow Pasta (macaroni), whole grain
2 - 28 oz cans whole Tomatoes

This recipe will make 6-1/2 quarts of pasta fazool in our Crock Pot, slow cooker.  If you have a smaller slow cooker, we suggest that you cut the recipe in half.

We start cooking the beans the night before we wish to serve the pasta fazool.  Set slow cooker with cover to �high.� Heat 12 cups of water (We use our microwave oven to heat 2 cups of water at a time.), adding it to the slow cooker container.

Sort through dried Black-Eyed Peas and discard any small stones, etc. Rinse Black-Eyed Peas and add to slow cooker with the hot water, and cover. Before retiring for the night, add more hot water, if needed, and turn setting to �low.�

In the morning, turn setting to �high.� Add the Basil and the Oregano to the slow cooker and stir into black-eyed peas. Add Hot Sauce or Cayenne Pepper to taste, if desired, and stir again.

Place in a microwaveable container with cover the following:

Peeled and washed Onions chopped into small pieces.

Garlic cloves, crushed.

Peeled, washed Carrots, cut into small pieces. (We cut carrots into rounds, and then cut the rounds into quarters.)

Washed Celery stalks cut into small pieces.

Place covered container with vegetables in microwave oven until vegetables are softened.

Then add to the slow cooker. Stir.

Before serving, cook Elbow Macaroni according to package instructions either in a conventional pot or a pasta pot. Do not over-cook. Drain, and add cooked macaroni to other ingredients in the slow cooker. Open the cans of whole Tomatoes and cut into bite size pieces. Mix tomato pieces and any liquid in with slow cooker ingredients.

Serve and enjoy!

A loving chef, who makes any meal taste better.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
