Letizia’s tagliatelle with puréed broad beans

Letizia wrote me a little essay on pasta to make sure we didn’t forget anything. At 100 years old, she may need a zimmer frame, but she is mentally as sharp as a tack. I asked her what the secret is to healthy longevity, and she says one has to stay busy – and to find your inner strength when terrible things happen. She was thinking of the recent death of her daughter. Practising what she believes, Letizia continues to write poems and loves to paint. She was a primary school teacher all her working life and has lived in her family’s summer house ever since the big earthquake in Sicily in 1968 destroyed her original home. Her dish of tagliatelle with a dried broad (fava) bean purée and wild fennel is humble but delicious. Wild fennel doesn’t have a bulb, but a tenacious root. Sow some seeds in the sunniest spot in your garden and you’ll have fresh fennel fronds forevermore.
