pasta with butter beans & red wine

pasta with butter beans & red wine

While this is wonderfully hearty & soul satisfying on its own, my
Irishman though it would be even better with the addition of a pork
product or two. So by all means add in some bacon or sausage or
even serve with a few slices of salty proscuitto draped over.
If you don’t have butter beans at hand, please feel free to substitute
in another white bean, or even a bean of a different colour.
serves 2
1 cup red wine
4 tablespoons tomato paste
1 can butter beans (400g / 14oz)
150g (5oz) short pasta
shaved parmesan, to serve
Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil and
cook pasta according to the packet directions.
Meanwhile, place wine, tomato paste and beans and the
bean liquid from the can in another saucepan. Bring to the
boil and simmer for 8 minutes or until the sauce is starting to thicken.
When pasta is cooked, drain and add to the sauce. Stir in
until everything is hot.Taste and season. Serve with parmesan shavings on top.
