This dish has been in my family for as long as anyone can remember. Since I am from Louisiana people eat red beans with rice, not with spaghetti; needless to say none of our friends enjoy this meal. Do not add meat.

Directions

  1. Rinse beans and place in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour; add more water as necessary to prevent drying out and scorching.
  2. When beans are tender, add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Season with salt to taste.

I agree that there are some things missing. I used to make this all the time using drained, canned kidney beans. The missing ingredients? Grated Parmesan cheese, a bit of Italian seasoning, a bit of olive oil or butter and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Makes a good cheap meal.

The salt ruined it for me. I can't stand all that fancy "molecular gastronomy" stuff. Next time I'll try it without the salt and see if that's bland enough for me.
