Uses for canned beef broth

I'm moving in a few weeks and am trying to use up what is left in my pantry and freezer. I've got a couple boxes of pasta, some canned beans, a can of crushed tomatoes and 2 cans of beef broth. I'm not a huge meat eater and I need to come up with something to make with this. I am willing to go buy a couple of ingredients, but nothing that will last for a while. It's about 95 degrees down here in Florida I'm not really wanting to make a slow cooking stew. TIA

  1. You don't need to get any other ingredients. The ones you have will make a 'primo piatto.'

    Cook some pasta in the beef broth. Drain the canned beans and rinse with water, draining the water before heating the beans with the crushed tomatoes. You got herbs in the house? If so, add some to the condiment. Add water if you think that the crushed tomatoes make too thick a topping for the pasta. Drain the pasta and plate it adding the heated crushed tomatoes and beans. Top with grated Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romana.

    Buon appetito e mangia bene!
