Feast your eyes on the finest italian beans with rosemary on garlic toasts! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Cover one side of each slice of bread with olive oil, then season with salt. Place the slices on the griddle for a few minutes until charred lines appear and the bread is crispy. Turn over and repeat on the other side.

While the bread is toasting, prepare the beans. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, then add the oil and onion and season with salt. Cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add the tomatoes, cook for about a minute until they start to release their juices, then stir in the parsley.

Add the beans and cook for 2 minutes until warmed through, adding a little water if the mixture seems dry. You do not want the beans to get mushy, so once cooked, remove from the heat and season well with black pepper.

When the ciabatta is done, rub one side with the garlic. Serve the beans on top of the toast and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your italian beans with rosemary on garlic toasts and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Chicken breasts are such a great option for an easy, quick and healthy midweek supper and this creamy sauce has a fabulous citrus kick. I like to serve this with a simple crisp green salad and some boiled new potatoes or – even better – my Mushroom Rice.

Farfalle con noci e GorgonzolaPasta salad with walnuts and Gorgonzola cheese

Gorgonzola and walnuts have always been a great combination. I find that they work perfectly with pasta and rocket. Of course you can eat this dish hot, but if you are making it for the following day make sure you eat it at room temperature and mix well before serving. If you prefer, substitute the Gorgonzola with any hard blue cheese of your choice.

Cozze allo ZafferanoQuick Mussel Stew with Saffron & White Wine

Mussels are by far the main shell fish that we eat in Naples, therefore, as you can imagine, I have grown up eating mussels in many different ways. Of course traditionally we would never use double cream, but for this particular dish it works perfectly. If you buy saffron strands instead of the powder, please make sure that you grind it before using it. Never use red wine for this recipe.

Pappardelle con MelanzanePasta with Aubergines, Tomatoes and Garlic Sauce

Many people steer clear of aubergine and yet it really is an easy vegetable to prepare. In this sauce, it enhances the tomato flavour without overpowering it, so if you have children who don’t like their vegetables, try this dish – they’ll hardly know it’s there. I often serve this pasta as a starter but be careful with portion sizes as you don’t want to fill everyone up before the main....

I absolutely love this recipe, so much so I would say it’s my favourite in this chapter. I lived on freshly landed seafood when I was a young boy and miss it hugely.  This was, and still is, number one for me. It’s so easy and yet you really feel that you have been spoiled when someone makes it for you. Please be careful when making the sauce and ensure that you do not stir the clams too vigorously...

Insalata di Pollo e ChorizoChicken and Chorizo Salad With Beans and Rocket Leaves

Every now and then I go on a health kick and watch what I eat, especially in the evenings. However, there are only so many salads you can have before you start to get a bit bored, especially during the winter months – but this is an amazing option: filling, delicious and incredibly good for you but at the same time it won’t leave you feeling hard done by, unlike some salads.
