Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp salt. Slice the potatoes into 1cm thick rounds.
Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the olives.
When boiling, add the potato slices to the water and simmer until tender, 15-20 mins. Once cooked, carefully drain in a colander.
Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Fry, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4-5 mins.
Stir the garlic into the mushrooom pan and cook for 1 min more. Pour in the passata, butter beans (and their liquid), olives and veg stock paste.
Stir in the sugar and butter for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts) and bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 10-12 mins.
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to high.
In a small bowl, combine the creme fraiche and grated hard Italian style cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together.
Trim the green beans.
Fill and boil your kettle.
When the bean mixture has thickened, stir through the sun-dried tomato paste, taste and add salt and pepper if needed, then transfer to an appropriately sized ovenproof dish.
Layer over the potato slices, overlapping them. Spoon over the creamy sauce in an even layer.
Grill your hotpot until golden, 5-7 mins. TIP: Put the dish onto a baking tray to catch any drips.
While your hotpot grills, pop your (now empty) potato pan on high heat with 0.5 tsp salt and the boiling water from the kettle.
Bring back to the boil, then add the green beans and cook until just tender, 3-5 mins.
Once cooked, drain in a colander, then return to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Toss in olive oil if you'd like.
When your Italian hotpot is ready, allow to stand for 2 mins before serving.
Share between your plates with the green beans alongside.
