2 cans(15-ounces each)Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
2celery stalks, chopped
¼cupchopped flat-leaf fresh parsley
2largepotatoes, peeled and diced (I leave the peels on with red potatoes)
½ -3/4cupsmall pasta
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pot until shimmering. Add the onion and bacon and sauté until the onion is translucent, stirring frequently. Add the garlic and stir, cooking for one minute.
Add all the other ingredients except the pasta and simmer, stirring occasionally, partially covered for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Add the pasta and simmer for 10 minutes longer. Serve.
