We’re no stranger to the old pesto switcheroo—you know, adding additional green vegetables to the traditional basil-based sauce for a flavorful and nutritious upgrade. Here, Giada De Laurentiis is showing us how she makes the dish even more kid friendly: Enter fusilli with pesto and green beans from her new book, Eat Better, Feel Better.
“Pairing pesto with two kinds of veggies makes this one of the greenest pasta dishes you can have,” she writes, “and if [my daughter] Jade is any example, it’s one kids are happy to eat. The pesto coats each twist of pasta like a velvety jacket, making every bite fun to eat.”
According to De Laurentiis, you’ll have leftover pesto—refrigerate it for up to a week (if it lasts that long).
