In the kitchen with Lee Italian language

Pasta con i fagioli: pasta with beans. An odd combination for some, but for sure a winter warming tasty dish. Try to believe.

First time I suggested pasta with beans to Lee, he was a bit shocked. Now it’s one of his winter favourites (he still eats canned beans on toast, too!)

To prepare this dish, you need to start a day in advance, because the beans need to soak overnight. 

Ingredients for 3/4 people:

200g kidney beans
Half white onion
Small celery stick
Small carrot 
250g broken spaghetti (in pieces of roughly 2,5 cm)
3/4 spoons of Oilive oil 
Salt

If you want to cook for more people add 50g of kidney beans and 65g of pasta for each person.


Con (with) is a great word to know especially at the restaurant.

It is used to describe what something is with.
For example:
Arancino con la carne
(Arancino with meat)
Arancino con i funghi
(Arancino with mushrooms)
Arancino con il gorgonzola
(Arancino with gorgonzola)

Andiamo in cucina! Let’s go to the kitchen!

*chop very finely the onion, the celery and the carrot and put it in a medium size pan.
* add the beans that you soaked overnight.
*cover with water (fill 3/4 of the pot).
*add salt to taste. 
*leave cooking for 1 hour and 25 min (do not stir for the first 45 min, just adjust the flame so that it does not overboil).
*add the broken spaghetti and the olive oil (add some water if it’s too dry).
*cook for another 12 min

Your pasta con i fagioli is ready!
