Absolutely Favulous! Favtastic! This is no Favrication. Everyone loved it, Favmously. But before you commit to this springtime Favarite, a couple words of caution. First, in order to maximize pleasure, you might want to combine the beans with the 3 P’s: pasta, pancetta, and Pecorino. Second, you must know that this dish is classic cucina rustica, or put another way, peasant food. This might be because it takes the patience of a saint (or a peasant) to shell fresh fava beans
. It’s a double shelling process: first the pod, and then the skin on the bean, and it takes a pound of favas to yield a cup. Favas are in season and delicious (if you can find them), so pour yourself a little verdicchio and embrace your inner peasant. Buon Appetito! Ed Garrubbo Check out our wine pairings
