Vegetarian Bean Pasta

Recipe by indiana mac
READY IN: 11mins




  • Start water in large pot to boil noodles.
  • Heat oil in a wide/deep skillet (or pot large enough for all ingredients except noodles),blade crush and mince garlic, add when oil is hot.
  • Dice fresh tomatoes or open cans quickly so the garlic doesn't burn; slightly brown is fine, but garlic needs only a brief period to release aroma.
  • Add tomatoes, parsley, oregano, and I add pepper now too if coarse black pepper is available; if not, just add some fine black to taste when serving.
  • When tomato mixture begins to bubble, cover and reduce heat to simmer (about 3 min).
  • Now is a good time to drain noodles if you haven't already.
  • Make sure you drain off all excess water, and please don't add oil to noodles.
  • Time to add beans and olives to tomatoes, cook 1 minute.
  • Serve as common noodles by pour over or mixing, sprinkle with cheese or salt/pepper to taste.
  • If you used fresh parsley and have any left over you can sprinkle that on top, how versatile.
