"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 can tomato soup
1 can beef broth
1/2 c. dry red wine or water
2 lb. beef stew meat- cut in 1 in pieces
(can use less)
1 can Italian style diced tomatoes (14 1/2oz)
4 large carrots (sliced or 1 inch pieces)
1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 cans (16oz.) white kidney (cannellini) beans,

Brown meat lightly; then add all but the beans in a 3 1/2 qt. slow cooker. Cook on low 8-9 hours or high 4 to 5 hours. Cover. Stir in beans and cook on high for 10 minutes.

I found an easier Jack Daniel's recipe: It said to use a tablespoon of tabasco. I tried it and nearly died--had to increase everything else by half to kill the heat, so I have a lot of sauce. I cut it back to 1-2 teaspoons
