Dish history

What a great mix of typical Italian products!! This recipe couldn't be more representative of the culinary culture of this country. Broad beans have been long described as 'the poor man's meat' because of their high protein and iron content. Their use in cooking is widespread, especially in the south of Italy and they can be found fresh in spring until late June, or dried all year long. Sundried tomatoes also originate from the smart thinking of the farmers, who had to find a way to preserve the produce for colder seasons. Last but not least, Pecorino Romano is a P.D.O. (Protected Denomination of Origin) product made from sheep's milk, mostly produced in Sardinia. Enjoy this all-conquering green, white and red combination!
