Description

Fava beans are a little tough to work with if you are shelling them yourself, but the work will be well worht it once you take your first bite of this dish. The beans are pureed with lemon and fresh herbs to create a bold and flavorful sauce that perfectly coats the quinoa tagliatelle. This dish is great for the spring, when fresh fava beans are easy to find. If you are unable to find them, frozen are fine. If you only have regular tagliatell, that will work just as well.
