 Categories: Pasta, Vegetarian
      Yield: 6 Servings
      1    Clove garlic; fine chop
      3 tb Pine nuts
      1 pn Coarse salt
      2 c  Basil; tight pack
    1/2 c  Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
    1/2 c  Pecorino Sardo cheese
    1/2 c  Extra-virgin olive oil

    1/2 lb Thin green beans; trim/halve
    1/2 lb Small red potatoes;
      1 lb Trenette, linguine or

           Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Place garlic, pine nuts and coarse salt in large mortar; then
  crush with pestle, using smooth, regular motions, to make a smooth
  paste. Add basil a little at a time. Crush to coarse paste, grinding
  leaves against side of mortar with pestle. Add pinch more salt and
  continue crushing. Gradually stir in and crush cheese. Drizzle in
  olive oil and continue working until pesto is very smooth and no
  large pieces of basil are visible.
  2. Heat large pot of salted water to a boil; add green beans. Cook at
  a boil about 3 minutes, remove with slotted spoon, drain and set
  aside. Add potatoes to same boiling water; cook about 3 minutes.
  3. Add more salt to boiling water if necessary; add pasta and cook
  until just done, 8 to 10 minutes. Just before pasta is done, remove 2
  tablespoons cooking water and stir into pesto. Drain pasta; toss in a
  large bowl with pesto, potatoes and green beans. Serve immediately.
  NOTE: Pesto can be made in a food processor fitted with metal blade.
  Process all ingredients together until smooth.
