Strascinati with Broad Bean Cream and Stracciatella - Spring regional recipe with lemon and mint

On the occasion of Mother's Day, Silvia Tavella La Regina del Focolare cooked the strascinati with broad bean cream and stracciatella. The mashed beans and chicory is a typical recipe of Puglia and the neighboring regions; often with the leftover broad beans purée, the pasta is seasoned. And it is precisely from here that her idea of her originates, a regional spring recipe, with lemon and mint, to which she has added a handful of tender and crunchy peas and a heart of creamy stracciatella.

This is a #PastaYourWay recipe to promote social inclusion and environmental protection.
