fresh borlotti bean soup alla maruzzara

Having worn me down over the past month, today Ana Louise gets her heart's desire with another helping of Carluccio and Contaldo's borlotti bean soup.

Unlike last time, this time we're using canned borlotti beans, which I'm not sure are any better than the dried version. Despite spending a day cluttering up the work surface soaking, I think you get a nuttier, firmer pulse - and more of them - with dried pulses, which outweighs the convenience of a tin.

Despite the picture, we did *not* sit in the garden and eat, we sat in the lounge watching stupid, stupid telly.
