  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion and garlic for 10 minutes, or until soft. Add the passata, haricot beans and tomato puree, cover and then simmer for 15 minutes, or until the sauce has developed a thicker consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Shortly before the end of the cooking time, slice the ciabatta rolls in half and toast.
  3. To serve, spread the margarine/butter onto the toasted ciabatta and top with the beans.
