 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Lb.           beef cubes
      1/2  Lb.           Italian sausage
    1      Can           tomatoes -- (16 oz.)
    3      Tbsp.         Lipton onion soup mix
      1/2  C.            dry wine (optional)
    1 1/2  C.            cooked small pasta shells
    1      Pkg.          frozen Italian green beans -- (10 oz.)
 
 Brown beef cubes in small amount of vegetable oil. At
 same time, cook sausage for 5 minutes, to remove some fat. Cut
 sausage into small pieces and add to beef. Add can of tomatoes
 until bubbly. Pour in wine, cooking to boil off alcohol (about
 5 minutes). Sprinkle soup mix; stir well and cook slowly until
 meat is tender. (If using pressure cooker, cook on high for 15
 minutes and let cool down.) Add green beans and let cook for 7
 to 8 minutes. Add cooked shells; mix well. Cover and let
 stand before serving; leftovers gain flavor.
