Fresh borlotti beans

The season of fresh borlotti beans has started. I never prepared a dish with the fresh ones, so I checked internet to find some typical recipes. Cooking time varies from one recipe to the other😏, between 10 minutes ( which is surely not correct) and 45 minutes. I decide to remove only the large outer layer, we’ll see. Chop 1 large red onion and 4 garlic cloves. Heat a pan with olive oil. Fry the onion and garlic. Add 2 cans of tomatoes and 2 dried chilies. Rinse the cans with some water and add some extra water in the pan. Add 2 bay leaves and 2 table spoons of chopped fresh sage. Add the borlotti beans. Allow to simmer for 30-50 mins, until the beans are ready. Taste, add pepper and salt. Finish with a few table spoons of light cream.Boil some pasta al dente. Serve and enjoy a simple and healthy vegetarian meal.
