Pasta with broad beans
Those who live in Southern Italy and love good food have an extraordinary privilege. Here in fact there are low cost high quality raw materials which can be cooked and enjoyed with friends.
Francesco Mondelli picked fresh broad beans.
I had pasta produced by Leonessa and fennel, mint and wild chicory in the garden. So I decided to prepare it with extra virgin olive oil and 10 year mature cheese.
We enjoyed this dish on Easter Monday with a very good Verdicchio 2009, one of the few white grape wines which doesn't make us regret the Campanian white wines.
Verdicchio Vigna Novali Moncaro
It takes just ten minutes to prepare this simple and corroborating dish.
