    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to instructions on the packaging until al dente; drain and set aside.
    2. Heat butter in a pan over medium-low heat; stir in rosemary and garlic. Add green beans, cover the pan and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until beans have softened slightly.
    3. Add chopped walnuts and stir to coat in butter; stir in cooked pasta and toss well to mix everything together. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan, if desired.

    Parmesan cheese:

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
