Tried and True...Orecchiette alla rustica (adapted from RR)

Have you ever watched a chef show and thought I can make that better?  or I can make that using different things? or I can make that with what is in the pantry?  That is where this recipe came from.  I used more things from a can, so this would be a great winter recipe.
Orecchiette alla rustica

1 lb orcheiette pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
3 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 can cannellini beans (not drained)
Some pitted Kalamata olives
½ cup each fresh parsley and diced bottled roast red pepper

  1. Cook pasta
  2. Heat oil, add garlic.  Saute until golden, add beans with their liquid, olives and seasonings (save some parsley)
  3. Transfer ½ cup cooking water to skillet.  Then then add pasta.
  4. Toss to mix. Add remainder of parsley to garnish
