Pappardelle with Romano Beans

  • SERVINGS: 4-6
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

For this lightly creamy, vegetable-packed pasta, you can substitute any green beans for the flat Romano beans.

  1. 3/4 pound fresh Romano beans, trimmed
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  5. 1 large scallion, white and green separated and thinly sliced lengthwise
  6. 1/4 cup sour cream, at room temperature
  7. 3/4 pound fresh pappardelle or fettuccine
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  1. In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the beans until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and refresh with cold water. Cut the beans into 2-inch lengths.
  2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in the olive oil. Add the red pepper and the white of the scallion and toss over high heat for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup of water, reduce the heat to moderately low, cover and cook until the pepper is tender, about 4 minutes. Add the Romano beans and cook until warmed through. Stir in the sour cream and scallion greens and remove from the heat.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the pappardelle, stirring, until al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain the noodles and transfer to a platter. Toss with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Season the vegetable mixture with salt and pepper, spoon over the pasta and garnish with the basil.
