    MsPia's Note:

    This salad comes from an Italian cooking magazine called "Subito Pronto". That translates to immediately ready. (Update: after the first review I double checked the recipe and it does call for 1 cup of olive oil; it might be an error made by the magazine, I haven't try the recipe myself yet so I'm not going to change the recipe for now)

      I really love the use of fava beans in this dish. The sauce alone is really very tasty, could have other uses. I think something might be wrong with the olive oil quantity. I only used 1/2 a cup because 1 cup seemed like far too much. Any more oil would have made mine swimming in oily sauce. Also in the directions it doesn't mention where to add the oil, but it was fairly obvious that it would go in the blender (hope so!). In any case, very tasty, I used a 12 oz pkg of ww pasta. Next time I'd up the garlic. Thanks Pia!
