    My boyfriend chose the recipe to bring as a side for hot dogs on the boat with my parents. It was amazing warm and ok chilled... Something about the bacon. He swears that he will never make anything with time consuming fava bean ever again. Double the time for the recipe.

    I agree with Stephanie MS. The dish was quite good (probably because of the bacon), but the prep time of 45 minutes was ridiculous. The fava beans take forever. Ninety minutes is more like it!

    Pretty good, just not amazing. This was my first time eating fava beans, and I must say, they don't have a lot of flavor. They could have been omitted since they taste a lot like garden peas (which are already in this dish). It was a little bland overall. I can't put my finger on it - more lemon?
