Green Bean Sage Pesto Pasta Sauce


Recipe By :Pestos! by Dorothy Rankin

Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00

Categories : New Import


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

-------- ------------ --------------------------------

1 1/4 cups fresh bread crumbs

(preferably from light whole-wheat bread)

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups slender fresh green beans -- cut in 1/2-inch dice

4 tablespoons sage pesto -- (4-6)

or pistachio pesto

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 cup finely diced yellow or red bell peppers

salt and freshly ground pepper


Preheat the oven to 300F.


Cut the crusts from a good homemade type bread and cut into chunks. Process

briefly in a food processor or crumble into fine crumbs by hand. Spread out the

crumbs on a large flat pan and toast in the oven until lightly browned, about 10

minutes. Toss with the olive oil while still hot.


Steam the green beans until barely tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Toss with the pesto

and butter while hot. Add the toasted bread crumbs, diced peppers, and salt and

pepper, to taste. Toss with hot pasta and garnish with fresh sage leaves.


VARIATION: Finely julienned Italian sun-dried tomatoes can be substituted for

the sweet peppers. Any basil pesto or Savory Pesto can be substituted for the

Sage Pesto.
