Our take on a north Italian Pasta alla Genovese, this Pesto and Green Bean Spaghetti is a thrifty game-changer. Using just a few simple ingredients and one saucepan, you won’t believe how easy it is to prepare this spaghetti dish from scratch. By combining Parmesan with garlic, basil and zesty lemon juice, we’ve recreated a luscious green pesto sauce for a fraction of the calories (and price!) of shop-bought versions. Don’t forget to save your pasta water – it gives every twisty forkful an even silkier texture.
