400g can borlotti or cannelloni beans, drained
400g can of tomatoes
1/4 bottle of red wine
1 vegetable stock cube
50g black olives
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
1/2 teaspoon salt

2. Put the pasta in the base of an ovenproof dish.
3. Chop the celery and add it to the dish along with the tomatoes, olives, beans, herbs, stock cube and salt. Gently mix all the ingredients together with a large spoon being careful not to damage the beans.
