Once the liquid has evaporated, add the pork and belly to the preparation. Saute for another 5 minutes before adding a ladle of vegetable broth.

Pour tomato sauce and beans into this preparation.

If you find that the preparation is not liquid enough, you can add more vegetable broth and simmer, covered, for an hour.

At the end of the hour, take a scoop of the beans, which you will mix before re-cooking with the pasta.

You can add broth if the preparation is not liquid enough.

Serve hot.
