From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com.
1 pound pasta of interesting shapes, or make your own fresh pasta
Bring 8 quarts of water to a full rolling boil. Add 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon oil. Bring back to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until half done. (only 2 minutes if using freshly made pasta) Add the beans to the pasta and water, and cook several minutes more, until beans are bright green and the pasta is al dente. Drain. In meantime, heat oil and garlic 1-2 minutes, then add the tomatoes and cook 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Combine the drained pasta and beans with the cooked tomato mixture in a pasta bowl, and then add the pesto and cheeses.
