110 ouncepackage of green beans with mushroom sauceI found mine at Trader Joe's
¼cuppasta wateror more if desired
Cook ¼-1/3 lb pasta according to box instructions. Save one cup of pasta cooking water, set aside. Transfer pasta to bowl.
After pasta is cooked, add about ½ cup of water back to the pot you cooked the pasta in. Add in a large handful of washed green beans. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat. Cook for about 3 minutes until green beans are bright green. Drain water.
Add pasta back to green beans. Pour desired amount of mushroom sauce over pasta and green beans. Then pour in pasta water, slowly until sauce thickens. Cook until sauce forms and pasta is warm. Serve in bowl, and add slivered almonds, parmesan cheese, and fried onions to top. Enjoy
Use your favorite type of pasta, I chose a twisty noodle for the sauce to stick to.
Steam all green beans, store leftover ones in the fridge for another dish. It'll be easier to eat them once they're cooked!
Double the recipe for leftovers to eat for lunch or dinner.
If you don't see this bag of green beans, grab another veggie with a sauce and add pasta to it. OR try this similar mushroom sauce, this one looks like a great & easy substitute.
Enjoy this pasta with a steak, chicken, or steamed edamame beans for protein.
