Broadbeans pasta


A simple and delicious pasta dinner.

You'll need:

  • 1 kg fresh or frozen broad beans
  • 3 handfull of rockte washed and roughly cut
  • Pasta of your choice
  • a bit of Butter
  • zest of a Lemon
  • a bit of dry white wine
  • salt ans pepper

Pod the broad beans and blanch them in boiling water. When they are done drain and let cool down.
Peel off the greyish skin. To do this cut the skin with a sharp knife and just pop the bright green beans out.
Peeling broad beans twice is really worth the effort, not only for the bright green colour but also they taste much nicer.

Boil the salt water for the pasta. For this recipe I like to take a big pasta type. Cook the pasta al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, blend the broad beans with a good lump of butter salt and pepper and if you like a bit of dry white wine.
Warm the broad beans puree in a saucepan, add some lemon zest.

When the pasta is ready, drain and add to the broad beans puree. Add the rocket. Mix everything, adjust the seasoning and serve on a hot plate.
