1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
3/4 cup water
1 beef bouillon cube
In a large saucepan or skillet, cook the beef, onion, celery and green pepper over medium heat until the vegetables are crisp-tender and meat is no longer pink; drain. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt if desired, basil and pepper. Stir in the noodles, beans, tomatoes, water and bouillon.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
