  • Summary

    Lemon, grated cheese, and cooking water make up the remarkably simple sauce for this pasta. Baby fingerling potatoes in different colors look great, but any small boiling potatoes will taste good -- just cut them into quarters if need be.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound mixed baby fingerling potatoes, such as red, gold, and purple, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
    • 10 ounces haricots verts, trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 1 pound long fusilli, cooked until al dente (1 1/2 cups cooking water reserved)
    • 2 cups finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese (4 ounces)
    • 1 lemon, zested into strips and sliced into matchsticks (2 tablespoons), and juiced
    • 1 cup torn fresh basil
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
