    Jazmina's Note:

    This is one of my favortie dishes and it goes great with rice or pasta. You can use canned favas (broad beans) but fresh is really were it's at if you can get them in season. It's a bit more work as you have to peel them but worth the effort.

      Delish! I used fresh favas from the farmers' market and had to do a couple of subs, but nothing that drastically changed the recipe. This was very tasty and really easy to make as well. I served it over mixed grains with a side of roasted asparagus. Thanks for posting, this is a keeper!
