Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds tiny new white or red potatoes, washed
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed 
  • 1/3 cup homemade pesto or your favorite jarred pesto
  • lemon (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the potatoes into a pot of boiling, salted water. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes, adding the green beans during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain well and put into a large bowl.
  2. Add the pesto and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, if using, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. 

Note: If you can't find tiny potatoes, cut red or white potatoes in half or fourths.
