Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • EdM on June 15, 2019

    Definitely needed the pepper, oil, and herbs (I used mint), as well as a bit of pecorino Romano, to enhance the mild flavor combo of ricotta and orecchiette.

    Wow, this was good! The mint & broad bean combination really was something different. Can imagine cooking this with frozen edamame or peas when broad beans are not in season. Will definitely repeat.
