Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
To prepare green beans, trim and discard the stems and ends from the beans. Wash just before cooking. Use a large enough pan or microwaveable dish to avoid overcrowding the beans. Cook the beans just until crisp-tender. Overcooking robs them of their bright green colour and fresh flavour.
This pasta dish is equally delicious whether served at room temperature or chilled.
