posted by 4 years ago


1 1/2 c. fresh basil leaves, firmly packed

1/2 c. pine nuts, toasted lightly in a pan over medium heat until golden brown

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 c. extra-virgin olive oil

3 Tbs. parmesan cheese, grated

3 Tbs. Asiago cheese, grated

Coarse salt

12 oz. fresh green beans, ends trimmed

16 oz. gluten free pasta


Combine basil, pine nuts, and garlic in a food processor fitted with a steel-blade attachment or a blender. Pulse until well chopped. While the machine is still running, slowly add the olive oil, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl several times. Puree until almost smooth. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the grated cheeses. Season with salt, to taste. Set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions adding the fresh green beans to the pot for the last 5-7 minutes of cooking. Drain beans and pasta, reserving 1 c. of cooking liquid. Add a couple of tablespoons of cooking water to the pesto to thin it if necessary. Add the pasta and green beans to the pesto and toss to coat. Top with additional grated cheese and serve immediately. (Serves: 4-6)
