  1. For a traditional serving, place a basket of the unshelled fava beans in their pods on the table along with the sliced, peeled cheese. Diners should shell the fava beans, then eat a bean, then take a bite of cheese.

  2. Sophisticated cooks will want to shell the fava beans in the kitchen, dice the pecorino cheese, and marinate with the oil, salt and pepper.
