Pesto Pasta with Vegetables Recipe at
Cut potatoes into halves if very small or into bite-size pieces. Cut green beans into 2-inch pieces. In a medium saucepan cook potatoes and green beans in a small amount of boiling salted water for about 10 minutes, or till vegetables are tender. Drain well.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or pasta pot bring 3 quarts water to boiling. Add pasta. Reduce heat slightly. Boil, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes, or till al dente, stirring occasionally. (Or, cook according to package directions.) Immediately drain. Return pasta to warm pan. Add potatoes and green beans.

In a small mixing bowl stir together pesto and enough of the water to make a saucy mixture. Pour the pesto mixture and Parmesan cheese over the pasta and vegetables and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
