    Instructions
    1. Crush the basil and garlic with a pinch of coarse salt (with a mortar and pestle if you want to be traditional, or a food processor if you don’t have one!) slowing adding oil as you go.
    2. Add the pine nuts, grated parmigiano, and grated pecorino to the mixture and continue drizzling in the oil until you achieve the consistency of thick cream.
    3. Boil water for the pasta, adding salt once it reaches a boil.
    4. Add pasta, green beans, and potato to boiling water.
    5. Once pasta is al dente — not overly soft and still has some texture — remove from heat and drain (reserve a cup of the pasta water!).
    6. Place pesto into a large serving bowl and add a few spoonfuls of the reserved pasta water.
    7. Pour pasta, green beans, and potato into the bowl with the pesto, mix, and enjoy!
