      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.

      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.
