We really love the texture, hardiness and earthiness of the fava beans, however, butter beans or large lima beans may be substituted.

I had a box of Orecchiette pasta (little ears) and was looking for some ideas when I happily found this recipe! I could not find Fava beans so I used Lima beans the prep was easy and everything came together quickly. The pasta salad is delicious and refreshing each piece of pasta holds a delightful bite of the beans. We will be serving grilled shrimp over it next time around. Thanks for the terrific recipe Cathy!
