PESTO PASTA WITH GREEN BEANS AND POTATOES
from "Real Simple® magazine"

If you want to save 10 minutes, don't peel the potatoes. Thin-skinned varieties like Yukon golds can squeak by with just a good scrub.

Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes

Makes 4 servings
INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

1/2 pound Yukon gold potatoes (peeled if desired)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
10 ounces green beans, ends trimmed
1 pound dry linguine or spaghetti
1 cup pesto
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (optional)

PREPARATION

Place the potatoes and salt in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are almost fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Add the beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain the potatoes and green beans separately from the pasta. Let cool. Cut the potatoes into a 1/2-inch dice and cut the green beans into 1-inch pieces. Transfer the pasta, potatoes, and green beans to a large bowl. Add the pesto, Parmesan, and pine nuts (if using) and toss. Divide among individual plates.
