Add the shelled fava beans and parboil them until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
In a large skillet, heat the oil with the garlic over moderate heat.
When the garlic sizzles, add the fava beans, fish stock, and lemon juice.
As soon as the liquid simmers, pour this and the beans over cooked pasta.
Scatter the tuna on top and garnish with parsley and plenty of black pepper.
