Recipe: Trofie alle Castagne Pasta with Pesto, Potatoes and Green Beans

Serves 4 people
 

Ingredients

2 jars of Genoese pesto for 500 g of chestnut Trofie pasta
3 potatoes, peeled and cut into thin Julienne strips
75 g of French-style green beans, ends cut off and cut in half.
Fresh Parmesan cheese to taste

Instructions

  1. Boil 3 liters of water, adding salt.
  2. Add potato strips and Trofie pasta.  Cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Add green beans.
  4. In a separate pan (I use a wok), heat pesto sauce on very low heat.  Cook pasta/vegetable mixture until all is al dente.  Drain.
  5. Add mixture to warm pesto sauce.  Continue to heat on very low heat, turning gently, for 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.  Season to taste with freshly grated Parmesan and freshly ground pepper.

Wine suggestion: Canus Pinot Grigio or Fontodi Vigna del Sorbo, depending on whether you prefer red or white
