INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE:
300 G. Spaghetti
1 KG. Fresh broad beans
300 G. Pillow
80 G. Pecorino
EVO Oil q.b
Let's toast the spaghetti in a baking pan at 180 °C for 20 minutes.
Wash and clean the fresh broad beans, keep aside the skins with which we will make a broth. Bleach the beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain them with a skimmer in a container with water and ice, then peel them and keep them aside.
Brown the pillow, well crunchy, remove excess oil and set aside.
Cook the spaghetti in filtered broad bean broth and in the meantime in a saucepan, make a base with extra virgin olive oil and chopped shallot, add the broad beans and let them flavour.
Drain the spaghetti, transfer them to the saucepan and stir in pecorino cheese, crunchy bacon, extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of reel pepper.
