Fettuccine with Green Beans and Walnut Parsley Pesto

 

Who says pesto has to include basil and pine nuts? This vibrant blend features walnut and parsley and is the perfect coating for pasta mixed with late-summer green beans and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.

Serves 6

 

#

10 oz. fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed, and snapped in half

1 lb. dried fettuccine

1 cup Walnut Parsley Pesto

10 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced

2 tsp. fresh lemon juice; more to taste

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 Tbs. freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

*

 

Bring a large pot with 4 quarts water and 1 Tbs. salt to a boil.

Add the green beans and cook until they’re just tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beans to a large bowl, cover with cold water, and then drain.

Return the cooking water to a boil and cook the fettuccine to al dente, about 10 minutes.

Drain and transfer to a large serving bowl.

Add the green beans, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice, 1 tsp. salt, and several grinds of pepper; toss well.

Taste and add more salt, pepper, and lemon juice, if you like.

Serve immediately with a sprinkling of the cheese.
