Fave Fresche con Pancetta (Fresh Fava Beans with Pancetta)

Recipe from: Adriana's Italian Gourmet Cookies

4 pounds fresh fava beans
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ pound pancetta, diced
1 cup beef broth
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 celery stalk, sliced
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Pod the fava beans (remove the skin if they are very big). Put the pancetta, the onion and the celery in a saucepan to sauté with the olive oil, stirring frequently. When the fat of the pancetta has melted, add the fava beans, moisten with hot broth and carry on cooking.

When the fava beans are completely done (about 20 minutes), add salt and pepper and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

That's it!
