  • 4 ounce fettuccine pasta, dry
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 clove garlic
  • 2 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 3 cup green beans
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon basil, dried


  • Cook pasta as directed on package, reserving 1 cup of cooking liquid when draining.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium. Finely chop onion and mince garlic. Add onion and half the garlic to hot oil; saute for 1-2 minutes. Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper; stir and cook for 20 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sauce from sticking to skillet.
  • Meanwhile, heat a second skillet over medium-high heat and add remaining oil. Once hot, add green beans; cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Add other half of minced garlic and sea salt; cook for 30 seconds longer, stirring to coat beans evenly. Add water, cover, and cook for 1-2 minutes. When beans are crisp-tender, remove from heat.
  • Remove sauce from heat; stir in cream and cheese. Add pasta and basil; stir well to coat evenly.
  • Serve pasta with beans on the side.
