Method:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan over a moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook the garlic, stirring until fragrant, for about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the stock, tinned tomatoes, dried oregano and dried basil and bring to a boil, breaking up the tomatoes with a fork.
  3. Add the beans, pasta, 2 tablespoons fresh basil and the Parmesan and boil, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. (The pasta will continue to absorb liquid.)
  4. Stir in the remaining basil and season to taste. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and serve immediately.
