A deliciously seasoned broad bean, onion and tomato spread. This recipe is inspired by a dish traditionally served with pita bread for breakfast in Egypt. A great way to use broad beans when they're in season, but feel free to use frozen when they're not.

This is a pasta bake similar to macaroni and cheese but closer to the way they serve it in Egypt. Very hearty and flavourful, I think you'll like it!
