the good of spring
Broad beans are a delicious spring legume, which is well suited to be consumed especially in the form of soups or creams.
The recipe of Antonio Amato Linguine pasta with creamy broad beans and crunchy almonds is simple to prepare and requires few steps. The delicate taste of the beans perfectly marries the decisive one of the pecorino cheese which combined with the crunchy almonds create a mix of textures and irresistible flavors.
Our version is suitable for those who follow a vegetarian diet but the pasta with broad beans lends itself to multiple variations: you can add a chopped fresh mint to the cream, replace the almonds with pistachios or, for a richer version, you can add bacon browned in a pan or dried tomatoes.
