From Dazzling Delightful Delicious. This is so good. Broad beans are also called Fava Beans. The lemon zest just brightens up this dish.

Review my Recipe Tag 2007 ~ I don't normally like broad beans when DH cooks as they are usually still hard and crunchy and lacking flavor. This recipe has made me change my mind about them and will make them often as it's a nice change. I did not wipe the skillet clean as I thought that would just be removing all the good flavor and therefore, added the beans to the pangrattato mixture and tossed around until heated through. I did however, forget to sprinkle on the parmesan before taking the picture! Thanks susie!
