- 8 ounces fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces or 8 ounces one 9-ounce packaged frozen cut green beans
- 6 ounces packaged dried bow-tie pasta, multicolored elbow macaroni or 6 ounces gemelli pasta
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (such as shiitake, crimini, brown, or button)
- 1⁄4 cup sliced green onion
- 1 (8 ounce) carton plain low-fat yogurt
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped cooked pancetta (2 ounces) or 1⁄4 cup ham (2 ounces)
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- If using fresh green beans, cook in a covered saucepan in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
- Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook pasta according to package directions, adding the mushrooms, frozen green beans (if using), and green onion during the last 4 to 5 minutes of cooking. Drain pasta and vegetables in a colander. Set pasta mixture aside.
- For sauce, in the same large saucepan stir together yogurt, flour, mustard, nutmeg, and pepper. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in pasta mixture, cooked fresh green beans (if using), and pancetta or ham. Heat through. To serve, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Really liked this, the mustard really makes it for me. I used fresh green beans, steamed them separately, and sauteed the mushrooms with the bacon ( I used bacon ;) ). I used a Greek yoghurt, overall we really enjoyed this and I will definitely be making it again, thank you AZPARZYCH! Made for Spring Photo Tag
This was an interesting pasta dish. I liked the addition of the green beans and mushrooms. I felt that the mustard was a tad too strong and next time will cut back on it. I felt it needed a little more kick, maybe red pepper flakes or garlic. I bought ham and forgot to add it, maybe that would have brought it up a notch.
I liked this. I think we might tweak it to fit our tastes a little by adding some garlic and salt and pepper. I did use sour cream because twice I had forgotten to get the yogurt. I used ham and it didn't seem to add much, it would probably be more flavorful with the pancetta. Anything that starts with green beans at our house is bound to be a winner.
