In a big pot, combine onions, garlic, pepper, pesto and margarine. On medium to high heat, mix well and cook till onions are soft. Do not burn. Season with spices and add canned tomatoes.
Chop tomatoes with spoon and season with salt and pepper(abt 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper). Lightly with handheld immersion blender - blend very gently the mixture so that it still has a chunky texture. Add the bans and mix through.
