Fava beans pair well with pork, such as pancetta, prosciutto, and, in this case, sausage. The sausage that is used in Italy is milder than the “Italian sausage” that is available in the States. Use either the homemade sausage or a mild sausage, such as breakfast links.
You can make this dish up to 2 days ahead and keep it in the refrigerator.
