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.

A true Sardinian speciality, fregola is a type of pasta typically made from semolina dough. It is similar to couscous, but with larger pellets that have been toasted in the oven so it has a firmer texture and nuttier flavour. You can find fregola of differing sizes in Italian delicatessens and online – it is perfect with fish or shellfish.

Scombro Grigliato Con Semi Di FinocchiettoGrilled Mackerel with Fennel Seeds and Balsamic Vinegar

When you fancy a savoury start to the morning, please try this. I love it: not only is it delicious but you can’t get anything healthier. Mackerel is an oily, coldwater fish known especially for its nutritional benefits, as it’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which are good for brain growth and protection. In fact, the omega-3 content may actually reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s...

Mousse Di Cioccolato Bianco E Pepe NeroWhite Chocolate Mousse with Black Pepper & Fresh Mint

I know that this may sound very strange to you, using black pepper in a white chocolate mousse, but believe you me, this is a dessert that all your friends will talk about. This recipe is easy, very tasty and definitely has the 'wow' factor, but make sure you use a good quality chocolate. You can also serve it straight from the freezer like a semi-freddo.

Fragole, Amaretto e MandorleStrawberries and Almonds with Amaretto Liqueur and Greek Yoghurt

Strawberries are on sale in supermarkets all year round but more often than not, the flavour isn't good unless they are in season. This recipe is perfect for those months when the berries are lacking their full taste and sweetness, as the Amaretto and honey add that extra something the fruit needs. This is a lovely refreshing dessert that will look really impressive if served in cocktail glasses.
