  • 200 g frozen peas
  • 50 g black olives about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 slices parma ham
  • 2 tips good quality tomato puree I use Cirio

  • Bring a pan of salted water to the boil.
  • Trim the ends from the fine beans (200g) and the chop them in half.
  • Put the fine beans and peas (200g) into the boiling water and cook for roughly 6 minutes until soft but still with some bite.
