Vegetable Bean Bolognese
   From ‘Cook Italian’  A Leggo’s recipe book

Serves 4 with a side salad

Ingredients;
1 clove garlic peeled and crushed
20 grams  EVVO
½ onion peeled and quartered
1 small carrot peeled and chopped
½ stick celery chopped
125 grams of tomato paste
¼ cup red wine or port
½ tspn of fresh rosemary (I didn’t use this )
1 bay leaf
1 dessertspoon vegetable stock paste
1 cup of water
420 gram can of four bean mix drained and rinsed
200 grams of cooked pasta/ pearl couscous
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or torn basil leaves

Method;
Turn TMX to speed 7 and toss crushed garlic onto spinning blades.
Add onion, carrot and celery and chop on speed 5 for 5 seconds. Add oil and sauté on 100, speed 1.5 for 4 minutes.
Add in tomato paste, wine rosemary if using , bay leaf, stock paste and water.
Then set TMX for 10 mins at 100 reverse speed 1.
Add drained four bean mix and cook a further 3 mins at 100 reverse speed 2.
Serve with pasta or couscous then sprinkled parsley or basil leaves.

This is really nice and not a heavy meal at all. Most of these ingredients would probably be in your pantry.

I've had a can of 4 bean mix in my pantry for ages so when I first saw this recipe I knew it would be put on the 'to do' list.

I also had some ricotta gnocchi in the freezer so I used this lovely sauce with it.

I would use it anywhere a passata type sauce is specified, I was very happy with it thanks Lucyluu.  I thought I had that book but I've only got Book 2 & 3 so this was obviously in Book 1. Thanks again for the recipe.

It looks lovely Judy. I think I have the book too, but to save looking I could just use the recipe from here. I bought beans last week, as they were on special I bought extra. I could make this and put it with pasta from the machine. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I used this sauce for CC's Cheese and bacon stuffed pasta shells.
