Recipe Directions for Broad beans pesto

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring it to the boil. Drop in the broad beans and cook for 3 minutes then remove them with a slotted spoon and rinse them under cold water. Remove the skins, drop the beans back into the boiling water, and cook them for about 3 minutes, until tender.

  2. Turn the oven on to a low heat, for warming food. Remove the broad beans to a large bowl, and keep the bowl warm in the oven. Drop the potatoes into the pot and boil until just done. Remove them with a slotted spoon and add to the bowl of beans.

  3. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until tender. Add pasta to the bowl and toss in the pesto, adding some cooking liquid if the mixture looks dry. Serve in bowls with a sprinkling of cheese and pine nuts.
