****OH DEAR !! Zaar will not allow me to delete this recipe, but unless you crave BLAND and TASTELESS -- do NOT prepare it ! SO disappointing ! I added a garnish of real bacon, a handful of grated Parmesan, LOTS of S&P, and it STILL had no flavor ! SO sorry ! That's what I get for posting something I had not prepared ! I think no native Italian would serve this either . Need to find more recipes with dried Fava beans !
This from "Best of the Best Michigan Cookbook" sent to me by QueenBee for the August, '09 cookbook swap. "Served in Puglia, in south of Italy --outstanding example of impact of fine olive oil. Garnished w/additional olive oil which adds flavor, and fried pasta which adds texture."
NOTE" Be sure to have SPLIT dried favas, not whole, or you will be cooking them for hours
