Beans and Pasta

I have meant to post this recipe for ages. I have made it...I don't even know how many times! It's really tasty, easy and filling, as well as pretty healthy. Nowadays the Boy and I are trying to reduce our meat intake, so this bean filled, vegetarian dish is perfect.

2 cups Bowtie pasta

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 medium carrots, diced

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tsp basil

1 tsp rosemary

1 tsp oregano

1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (19 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 (19 oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Parmesan cheese to serve


1. Cook until tender but firm. Drain.

2. Heat oil over medium heat in a large deep skillet.

3. Add carrots, onion and garlic to skillet. Cook until tender.

4. Add spices and tomatoes to skillet. Bring to a boil.

5. Add beans to skillet.

6. Add cooked pasta to skillet. Simmer gently for 2 minutes. Serve in soup bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
