    Preparation: Soak the beans adding a little baking soda on the previous night. In a saucepan, sauté the onion and lard, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon; when the onion is browned, add the tomato purée, stir, then blend in the beans and the potatoes (peeled and cut into dices), add approx. 2 l of water, salt and allow to simmer uncovered for a couple of hours. In the meanwhile, work the eggs and the flour into a dough on the pasteboard; with a rolling-pin, roll out into a thin pastry layer, which you will roll and finely cut in order to obtain small tagliatelle (noodles). Cook the small tagliatelle in the bean broth, then pour into a tureen and serve with grated Parmesan.
