5 lg Ripe tomatoes; chopped
1 ts Salt
1 pn Freshly-ground black pepper
3 tb Balsamic vinegar
1 Garlic clove; smashed
4 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb Fresh fava beans; shelled
4 oz Haricots verts or regular
-- green beans
8 oz Tagliarini; see * Note
2 c Basil leaves; julienned
Note: Tagliarini, fettucine, or tagliatelle can be used for this dish.
Place the tomatoes in a bowl with 1 teaspoon salt, pinch of pepper,
vinegar, garlic, and olive oil, and let marinate for at least 1/2 hour.
Remove the garlic, and discard. Puree one-third of the tomato mixture in
a food processor, and press the puree through a strainer to extract as
much liquid as possible. Discard the solids. Meanwhile, bring a large
pot of salted water to a boil over high heat, and have a large bowl of
ice water ready for the vegetables. Add the fava beans to the boiling
water, and blanch for 40 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon, and
transfer to the ice water. When the beans are completely cool, remove
from the ice water, and peel off the loose outer skins. Add the haricots
verts to the boiling water, and blanch for 1 minute. Remove with a
slotted spoon, and transfer to the ice water. When the haricots verts
are completely cool, drain well, and set aside with the fava beans.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the
tagliarini, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain noodles in a
colander, and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Toss tomato
broth, remaining chopped tomatoes, fava beans, haricots verts,
tagliarini, and basil together in a bowl. Adjust seasonings, and serve
immediately. Makes 4 servings.
