Introduction

This is a basic Italian dish that everyone loves. This is one of those Italian comfort dishes. We always had it on Fridays because meat was not allowed.

Ingredients

Serves: 2

  • ½ kilogram ditalini (small tube pasta)
  • 1 tin crushed tomato (a large tin, 28oz)
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 small diced sweet onion
  • 2 tins cannellini beans (large tins)
  • olive oil (a good one)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • fresh basil
  • oregano

Method

  • Saute the crushed garlic and diced onion in olive oil in a low Dutch oven or a high sided skillet.
  • Add in the seasonings, saute until soft. Add the cans of cannellini beans (drained), saute them for about 10 -12 minutes in the garlic and onion mixture. Add in the crushed tomatoes and continue to cook for at least fifteen minutes.
  • Cook your ditalini in a good amount of salted water, drain when el dente - don't overcook the pasta, if anything undercook it because it will cook in the sauce. Drain the ditalini.
  • Add to the sauce skillet and cook for about 5 minutes more. Serve with garlic bread and lots of good parmesan. ENJOY!
