4 October 2019

Hey there!

Starting our blog for this year we hope all students at both Swansea University and UWTSD had a great time through freshers and having survived that are feeling almost normal again! 

We’ll be touching on a range of topics and sharing interesting things we find over the next couple of months but just to kick off for now we want to share a simple recipe that can aid in that recovery – take this cheap meal to your room to nosh and relax..


  • 2 portions of spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon oil to fry
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 mushrooms, sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1⁄2 mug water
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1⁄2 x 310g can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 12-15 black olives


  1. Put the spaghetti on to cook.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic for 30 seconds, add the mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 4–5 minutes. Stir continuously.
  4. Drain the pasta and put onto a plate. Pour the bean mixture over the top. Eat!
