Orecchiette with Ricotta, Broad Beans and Mint
Single Review Display
Easy and good.
Lots of typical Slater vagueness as it's written. Just how much is a "small, bushy bunch" of mint anyhow?
He has you boil the shucked favas for 7-10 minutes. I think they'd be mush after that amount of time. I do mine (following instructions I found elsewhere) for 30-60 seconds. I sort out the
biggish ones and put those in for 30secs, then add the smaller ones for another 30secs. Works fine.
I added a bit of pasta water to the sauce, since it seemed a bit dry. Could have used a bit more probably. Didn't add the extra olive oil at the end.
Ssh, don't tell. I used another pasta shape, not orecchiette.
