To follow a traditional Ligurian recipe, you can begin boiling 70 g of green beans and two sliced potatoes. When these are half-cooked, add the pasta and cook it through, then drain the pasta and the vegetables and pour them into a mixing bowl with the pesto; mix, add a sprinkling of Grana Padano cheese and serve.
The quantity of pesto in 120g package is the perfect seasoning for 160 g (2 servings) of dry pasta.
