Sausage Tomatoes Fava Beans Pasta
Ingredients (for 2 people):
- 200 g of pasta;
- 300 g of cherry tomatoes;
- 100 g of sausage;
- 150 g of peeled fava beans;
- 2 basil leaves;
- salt and oil a.r.
Directions for the Sausage Tomatoes Fava Beans Pasta
Fill a saucepan with water for the pasta. Put it on the stove and turn the heat on (medium to high heat).
While waiting the water to boil, we can prepare our pasta dressing.
Wash the cherry tomatoes. Cut them in fourths and put them into a non-stick pan. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon and half of olive oil. Put the pan on low heat and cover it with a lid. From time to time, stir it. Leave it cooking for about 5 minutes.
Peel the fava beans, unless you already bought pre-peeled ones.
If the cherry tomatoes are giving away water and are getting wrinkled, add the fava beans and the basil leaves in little pieces. Stir the content and cover the pan with the lid. Let it cook for 5 minutes.
Note: The water in the saucepan should be now boiling. If so, add the grainy salt and bring it boil again. Pour the pasta and cook it according to the time reported on the package.
Peel the sausage and put it in another non-stick pan. Put on hight heat and let it brown. It requires no-more than a couple of minutes. Keep stirring it and using a fork mince it.
Once the sausage is brown in an even way, turn the heat off. Drain the fat excess, if any.
Now, pour the sausage into the tomatoes and fava beans pan. Stir the content and let it cook without the lid, at high heat, for a couple of minutes or until the water evaporates. Don’t dry the dressing too much. It should look creamy.
Drain the pasta and add it to the dressing.
Cook at high heat while stirring for no more than 1 minute.
Serve the Sausage Tomatoes Fava Beans Pasta while still hot.
Enjoy your meal!
