Trim ends from beans. In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add onions and garlic and cook 5 to 10 minutes until soft.
Add beans to onion. Mix tomato paste with water. Pour tomato mixture over beans, then add more water if necessary to cover the beans.
Add oregano, salt (we didn't use), and pepper. Cover pan and simmer 20 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove lid and boil to reduce the liquid. Serve garnished with chopped bell pepper or oregano sprig.
Grove tips: 12/24/05 We added the red bell pepper to the onion garlic mixture and used dried oregano instead.
