The beans can be done in a slow cooker or they can be baked in the oven in the last 30 minutes after initial hour of cooking. Pick a better tomato paste, they often come with spices and onions already included and they are not expensive. They even sometimes come with sliced olives and those taste delicious. If you see any herbs already added to the tomato paste go for parsley.
