A fantastic way to make the most of the flavours in fresh green beans!
The quantities below serve 3, but I'm sure that if you were to increase the pasta to 300g (to serve 4) the remaining quantities, perhaps with some more beans if you had them, would be fine.
3 good handfuls of green beans (approx 190g), topped & tailed
35g pine nuts
2 cups basil leaves
1 clove garlic
120ml extra virgin olive oil
80g Parmesan, grated
1 tbsp ricotta
I didn't alter the original directions too much, but here's how I made it:
This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
