  • 3/4 pound fingerling potatoes (or small white potatoes)
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 3/4 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2/3 cup prepared basil pesto
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, optional


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot of lightly salted water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until just tender. With a slotted spoon, remove potatoes and keep warm.
  2. Into the simmering water, add spaghetti and boil for 4 minutes. Add green beans and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
  3. Return spaghetti and green beans to the pot. Cut the cooked potatoes into bite-size pieces and add to pot. Stir in pesto and about 3/4 cup of the reserved cooking liquid. Add more cooking liquid if necessary to evenly coat all the pasta.
  4. Serve immediately with grated Parmesan, if desired.
