“Tuscan vegetarian comfort food. Omit the cheese to make it vegan.” - by lovesitaly
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta in boiling water until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
- While the pasta cooks, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the garlic and red pepper flakes in the hot oil briefly, about 1 minutes. Stir the broccolini into the garlic; cook and stir together for 5 minutes. Add the fava beans and sun-dried tomatoes and cook until the beans are completely warmed, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and toss with the drained pasta in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese to serve.

"I love Italy, too, lovesitaly! Please try this recipe for a light, healthy summer meal. I highly recommend it. Progresso has canned fava beans. Ask your grocer to order you a few cans if you have trou..." See moreble finding them. They make this recipe. Now, I do have a couple of personal changes to mention. I used 12 oz. of dried WW penne pasta. I think using a whole pound, the broccolini and favas would get lost. I also added 2 heaping tbsps of fresh chopped basil with the beans and sundried tomatoes and sprinkled 1 tbsp on top, after mixing everything together, before sprinkling the cheese on top. If you can find smoked sundried tomatoes, try them! They give a nice depth of flavor. Lastly, I combined 3 cheeses - asiago, pecorino romano and parm - again, for more complex flavor. Thanks again, lovesitaly!"
