Best Pennywise Tips:

If you don't want to use spaghetti, use a different pasta. There are so many sizes and shapes, you'll be sure to find one that you like.

This is a good way to use up bits of packages of pasta, too. No one says you can only use one type. If you have leftover pasta (with sauce on it or not) use it.

Break the spaghetti into smaller pieces before cooking or run a knife through the spaghetti to cut strands.

Add additional water, as needed, or use left-over gravy or other soup or vegetable juice.

Vary the beans. Try chick peas(garbanzo beans),navy beans or pinto beans.

Use chopped fresh vegetables or frozen or canned vegetables.

This is an excellent recipe to use up left-overs.
