In Italian, fagioli usually refers to beans removed from a pod, such as white cannellini beans, while fagiolini have an edible pod, such as green beans. Yet it seems to bother no one that the long, flat, completely edible romano beans used in this recipe go by both names, fagioli a corallo and fagiolini a corallo, with a slight preference for the former in the markets of Rome. Nor does anyone explain the corallo, which means "coral," though it may reflect the fact that the beans turn reddish when left to dry on the plant.
