Peel and dice the carrots, celery and onion. Drain the Borlotti beans. Wet the Kombu seaweed sheet and cut it into squares. The Kombu seaweed will facilitate the digestion of the bean skin and limit its fermentation. 

Microwave cooking

Add half of all the ingredients, except for the pepper and Parmesan cheese, in to 2 x 370 ml Weck jars. Clean the edges of the jars, close and clamp. Set the microwave (or the Ultracombi in microwave mode) to 800 W, place the jars one at a time and cook for 3 minutes. 

Once the cooking is completed, remove the jar from the oven and let it rest, closed, for another 5 minutes. The jar is pressurised and while resting, a vacuum will be formed and the cooking cycle will be completed. 


The pasta and beans are ready to be eaten immediately, simply add parmesan and pepper, or can be kept in the fridge after cooling, preferably in the blast chiller. It can be stored for 7 days.
