I remember doing this recipe on the roof of hotel in Goa. We had a bambo shack set up with a few mattresses and a gas stove. It was so hot we could wear just shorts through out the night. I think we were paying around £7 a month to stay there, still can’t believe it.Anyway, I got this recipe down whilst eating in on the the cheap. Haven’t changed it since.

Recipe:

  1. Chop the onion and garlic fine.
  2. Chop the mushrooms into 3rds, (yes that’s right- its the best shape)
  3. Chop the ends of the beans and cut in half
  4. Add the onion to a hot frying pan with oil for a min then add the garlic for another 2min
  5. Stir in the mushrooms for 2min
  6. Add the cream tomato, chilli, beans, salt+pepper
  7. Leave to simmer with lid on for 20min. Stir occasionally, add water/creamed tomato if it gets too thick.
  8. Serve on good pasta
