INGREDIENTS (for 4 people):

 

  • 300 g Fusilli pasta
  • 100 g Fava beans without pods
  • 25 g Pine nuts
  • 50 g young Tuscan Pecorino cheese
  • 100 g Finocchiona (Tuscan Salami with Fennel)
  • 1/2 white Onion
  • Salt, Pepper and EVO Oil

Directions:

  1. In a pan, brown the diced onion with EVO Oil
  1. Once the onion is cooked, add a handful of Fava beans. Cook them by adding water.
  1. When the Fava beans are soft, add the finely diced "Finocchiona" and sauté quickly. Do not add salt in the preparation: the flavor will be released from the salami and pecorino cheese.
  1. Using a mixer, create a pesto with Fava beans, pecorino cheese, pine nuts and EVO oil. If the beans were not fresh, we suggest blanching them first and removing the peel, to obtain a better pesto.
  1. Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water. Drain them directly in the pan with the whole Fava beans and Finocchiona. Mix everything to flavor the pasta well.
  1. In a bowl put the pesto with a ladle of cooking water. Pour the fusilli and stir everything until get a creamy and well-seasoned pasta.
