What's cooking?  Chicken tonight-one pot!  This is a family favorite around these parts.  Be flexible with what you have on hand, add a little of this or that according to your families taste.  If you are of the vegetarian persuasion then substitute the meat for tofu.

1 medium onion or leek
2 garlic cloves
1 celery stick
2 carrots
2-3 T Olive oil
1 lb. of ground meat
can of beans (whatever is in the pantry)
12 cups chicken or vege stoc
lg can tomato sauce or diced
box of small shaped noodles

Throw all veges into food processor and blitz. 

In large pot heat and add oil.  Add vege mix and sautee for 5 min. 

While that is sauteing gather the rest of your ingredients

Add meat or tofu.  Cook till brown breaking into tiny pieces. 
Add drained beans, stock, and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil, add pasta and cook for about 15 min.  The liquid will get absorbed by the noodles making it more stew-like than soupish, thus=stewp!  Add S & P for taste.

Cornbread and a salad rounds out the meal.  You can add parmesan cheese for those cow lovers out there!  Oh, and the wine, that's for me ;)
