This was really, really yummy thanks Bergy. I used fresh broad (fava) beans and maybe a bit more tomato sauce than you suggested and less water but I had sauce in the fridge needing to be used. The recipe was simple but the end result was delicious. I'm sad so few people like broad beans, but that means more for me I guess ;-)

Man was that good! Thanks I picked up fava beans from the farmers market and had no idea what to do with them. I'd use your sauce for grean beans as well.

If I could give this stars, it would get five. The changes made were: one can fava beans, one pound sausage cut into discs, cayenne pepper, cumin, fava beans, 1/3 can crushed tomatoes, hot and regular paprika, one onion, garlic and garlic powder cooked and put over rice. Thank you for a recipe that gave me the courage to try something totally out of the ordinary. Yum!

Well, we had this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. I couldn't find fava beans, so I used a can of butter beans and a can of mixed beans. We also included some cauliflower and beef since we had it lying around and it needed to be used.

The sauce was great, really rich and tasty, so good that my partner had seconds (not a common thing sadly).

Thanks for a great dinner!
