green googlies!!!

I got creative with some of the vast quantities of veg infesting the fridge at the moment and made the following luridly green pasta sauce:

1/4 small onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup fava beans, blanched & peeled
2/3 cup heavy cream
large handful of arugula, blanched
1/2 cup or so grated parmesan
1 clove garlic

Saute onion in olive oil. Just before it starts to brown, add wine. Add fava beans and cook until soft. Add cream before wine is cooked off. Add arugula, parmesan, and garlic. Throw the whole lot in the blender & blend until smooth. Toss with cooked hot pasta, preferably fun stuff like spiraled long fusili. Call it something entertaining like "Green Googlies" and watch the child (and the husband, it should be noted) suck it back like there's no tomorrow.
