Linguini with Pesto, Potatoes, & Green Beans

Here's a very easy dinner that combines comfort food with a salute to sunnier days. If you use a pre-made pesto (I used Trader Joe's), you only need one pot. This dish was inspired by a recipe from The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen by Donna Klein. She has a great vegan pesto recipe called Poor Man's Pesto that I have often enjoyed.

3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into eighths
6-8 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into 2" pieces
12 oz dried linguini
7 oz pesto
feta and pine nuts for topping, if desired

Boil a large pot of salted water. Add the potatoes and green beans and return to the boil for 3-4 minutes. Add the linguini and cook for 7-8 minutes. Drain. Add pesto sauce and serve with pine nuts, olives, and feta. Your done!
