Pasta with Pesto Beans and Potaoes
Serves: 2
  • 180-200 pasta
  • 100g runner beans
  • 100g potato
  • 100g pesto
  • salt and pepper
  1. Put a pot of water on to boil and cook the potatoes. Once cooked, remove the skin and roughly cut up into medium sized pieces.
  2. Put a pot of salty water on to boil and cook the beans. Once cooked remove them with a sieve or a slotted spoon and cut into roughly 1 cm pieces. Keep the water to cook the pasta in.
  3. Cook the pasta as per the instructions but remove 1 - 2 minutes before it is finished.
  4. Drain the pasta (reserve some water) and then place it back in the same pot. Add the cut potatoes, beans and pesto and finish the cooking off.
  5. If it is looking a little dry, add some of the pasta water to the pasta to keep it from drying up. Add some freshly ground black pepper, check the seasoning and keep mixing the pasta so it cooks evenly.
