in the kitchen with: valerie rice’s fava bean and arugula pesto orecchiette – Design*Sponge

Fava beans are in season, the weather is looking up, meals are moving outdoors.  These are three good reasons to try blogger and entertainer Valerie Rice’s recipe for fava beans and arugula pesto orecchiette.  I admit that I am not a big fan of shelling fava beans, but the flavor of this final dish was so rewarding, I am making this pasta again.  My resident taste tester said it is the best pasta he has had all year!  I love the way all the elements of the dish come together and like even more that it can be served warm or cold.  It was great the next day here, as I did not taste it on the day I prepared it.  The recipe below is for four appetizer size portions, so if you think you’d like more, double it.  And keep a jar of the pesto on hand.  It’s great too!  –Kristina
