If you happen to have plenty of fine green beans this summer, have a go at making this simple Italian baked pasta dish. If you do not have the time or the will to make your own tomato sauce, just use a good quality jarred sauce.
Remember that pasta needs to cook 2 minutes less than suggested cooking time for best results. When calculating, consider that green beans will need to cook for about 10 minutes. So, for example, if pasta package says it needs 10 minutes to cook, add it to the pot 2 minutes after the green beans, so it will cook 8 minutes.
