    1. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish and add the beef. Brown the meat all over, stirring frequently. Using a slotted spoon, remove the meat from the dish.
    2. Add the onion to the dish and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until it is softened. Then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic and 600 ml of the stock. Stir well, then bring to the boil.
    3. Return the beef to the dish, along with the carrots, celery, swede and seasoning to taste. Cover and simmer gently for 1 hour, or until the meat is tender.
    4. Add the pasta and oregano along with the remaining stock. Bring to simmering point, then reduce the heat and cover the dish. Cook for 20–25 minutes, or until the pasta is tender. Serve immediately.
