HOW TO COOK BENTILIA’S LENTIL AND BEAN PASTA


OPTION 1 

1. When cooking any pasta you should always use a medium pot with 2 cups of water per cup of pasta.
2. Bring water to a boil and add salt if desired. Beans and lentils have a natural salty taste and at Bentilia we prefer to keep that taste intact, so we add salt to balance off the effects of dilution from water. We use 1/2 tbs per 2 cups of water.
3. Add pasta and when the water boils again, reduce the heat in order to avoid spill over. Stir occasionally. Beans and lentils pasta tends to create more foam than traditional wheat pasta.
4. Cook times may vary. Start by checking the pasta after 8 minutes by grabbing a noodle and taste it. Add a minute more and check again until you find your preferred texture.
5. Once cooked, drain and rinse off well with cold water.
6. Set aside and when you are ready to eat, heat them with your favorite sauce. Then serve and enjoy a truly healthy meal.

OPTION 2

1. Start by placing the quantity of pasta desired into a ceramic or stainless steel bowl, make sure there is enough room to add double the amount of water, so in other words leave the bowl half empty.
2. Bring water to a boil, you can use a kettle or a pot.
3. Once boiling, pour over the pasta so it is completely covering the pasta and then add more water so the pasta is clearly 2 inches below the water line.
4. Cover with plastic wrap or a tight lid if you have one that matches the bowl and let stand for a minimum of 45 minutes.
5. Check pasta for desired texture; if not to your liking then let it sit a little longer checking at a 10 minute interval.
6. Once done, rinse and drain well. Set aside and use once you are ready to eat.
