Spaghetti with Red Curry, Green Beans and Peanuts

Serves 4

Recipe by Rebekah Peppler

INGREDIENTS

1 lb spaghetti

1 cup dry roasted peanuts*

1 lb green beans

2 tablespoons neutral oil (such as canola)

2 tablespoons red curry paste

1 15-oz. can coconut milk

kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

*lightly salted peanuts work best, but you can use unsalted and season them yourself

PREPARATION

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Drain through a colander.

In a food processor, pulse peanuts 3-4 times, until crushed but not paste-like (if you don't have a food processor, you can just chop the peanuts with your knife).

In a large sauté pan with a lid, add enough water to come 1/2-inch up the side of the pan. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add the green beans, cover and steam until al dente (about 2 minutes). Drain the green beans and transfer to a bowl.

Wipe out the pan and return it to medium heat, then add neutral oil red curry paste . Toast the curry paste for 30 seconds, then add the coconut milk and whisk gently to combine. Simmer for about two minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly. Season with salt and pepper.

Trim the ends off of the green beans and cut them into roughly 1-inch pieces. then add them to the pan along with the cooked spaghetti, and toss to coat.

To serve, sprinkle with the crushed peanuts.

For this recipe, you'll need a large sauté pan with a lid and a large pot to cook the pasta.

A sauté pan is different than your average skillet because it has tall, straight sides. You can get one here. Any stock pot that's at least 8 quarts will work, but a 12-quart pot is your best bet. Get a simple one here.
