4. Once the meat is browned on both sides, but not yet cooked through, add the mushrooms and stir once again
5. Once the meat has cooked for 3-4 minutes, add the vegetable stock and stir through. Increase the heat of the stove and leave to simmer for another 2 minutes so the meat and mushrooms can get familiar!

6. Now, add the tomatoes and stir once again
7. The kitchen should be starting to smell incredible!
8. Time now for the seasoning. Add: a pinch of salt, a sprinkle of mixed herbs, a handful of chopped parsley and a handful of chopped basil.
9. Finally, add both cans of beans and black olives to your mixture
10. Make sure the stove remains on a medium heat and let this cook for at least 25 minutes. You should leave the lid on and every 5-6 minutes check and stir the ingredients
11. After 25 minutes has passed, remove the lid from your saucepan and grate some fresh parmesan cheese over the top.
12. Check that your sauce is not too runny and not too dense. You can now switch off the stove.
