Le Cirque's Fettuccine With Green Beans and Basil

Le Cirque's Fettuccine With Green Beans and Basil created by mary winecoff

This is so simple and so perfect--a lovely marriage of fresh vegetables and herbs, with al dente pasta, lightly accented with butter and parmigiano. It's thanks to the artistry of Sirio Maccione of Le Cirque.

ingredients

directions

  • Bring a good sized pot of salted water to a boil and add the green beans and cook, perhaps as much as five minutes, but you must check--the beans should be tender but still crisp.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • Place basil, garlic, parmigiano and olive oil in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth -- you should have about 3/4 of a cup of the mixture.
  • Meanwhile, cook the fettucine in boiling salted water until al dente, drain the pasta, and reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  • Melt one tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet and gently saute the green beans to warm them, seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the pasta in with the beans.
  • Add the basil puree, the pasta water and the remaining butter and stir well.
  • Taste, adjust seasoning, and serve.

    This was awesome! I would decrease the olive oil next time. I also did not use the broth. I did squeeze some lemon on my plate as Jellyqueen did; it was a nice addition. Greay way to use Green Beans. Loved it!

    I had just picked some fresh green beans from the garden and whipped this up fast. Loved the taste and the ease in making. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT4.
