It's 4:51 AM. I have spent tonight drawing, watching episodes of Luxury Comedy and New Girl and cooking this pasta sauce. Although it is really delicious even if I do say so myself, where is the fricken greenery? That is one problem with being between night shifts. There is no where to buy lettuce at 3 AM. This pasta sauce is made of a bunch of things I had laying around. The capers were a bargain 75 cents for a giant jar and the beans I buy in bulk, so all in all this is quite a frivolous meal. You can eat the beans with out the pasta but hey, I love carbs.
Time: 10 minutes prep. 30 minutes if cooked in a pressure cooker, 20 minutes on the stove top, 4 hours on high if cooked in a slow cooker.
- One onion, chopped.
- 6 cloves of garlic, minced.
- One capsicum, sliced.
- Half a cup of olives.
- One quarter of a cup of capers.
- Three cups of dried cannellini beans, soaked overnight in water and drained.
- Quarter of a cup of olive oil.
- Half a cup of tomato paste.
- Four cups of water.
- One pinch of salt.
- One pinch of pepper.
Place all of the ingredients in a pot/ pressure cooker/ slow cooker.
If using a pot on the stove top, bring to the boil and let simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally.
If using a pressure cooker, place the lid on and bring to pressure. Reduce heat and continue cooking for half an hour. Reduce the pressure and the sauce should be ready.
If using a slow cooker, place all of the ingredients in the cooker and cook on high for 4 hours.
Good night, fancy world.
Sweet dreams xx
