Beef and Beans With Pasta

by . Featured in HOW TO EAT

Introduction

This comes from the children’s food chapter of How to Eat, but it should certainly not be confined to the Kids’ Menu. It is a de-stressingly easy, fabulous tasting, one-pot meal that provides instant comfort.
When my children were little, I didn’t add any parsley to this (one of them had nothing but affronted disdain for Green Bits) but please add a scattering of freshly chopped parsley to serve if you wish. And I pour over mine some fierce and glowingly orange chilli oil.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.

  • Bought How To Eat when it first came out, must say it’s the best cook book I’ve ever had. Went to read it the other day and it has disappeared!, no one is owning up -fuming to say the least!!!

  • This is somewhat similar to a classic kids' dish in New England (or, Maine, at least) called "American Chop Suey" for reasons that I could never understand. It was a guilty pleasure for most adults, including me! Thanks, Nigella!

  • I veganized this and added 2 teasponns sweet paprika and a couple of shakes of dried thyme and it was outstanding! Will definitely make this again!
