i pinned this pasta salad recipe

i highly recommend it :)
string bean, arugula & pasta salad
Prepare an ice-water bath. Cook green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beans to ice-water bath until cool, reserving water in pot. Drain beans, & cut into 2-inch-long pieces.
Add pasta to the reserved boiling water, & cook until al dente. Drain & spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Transfer chilled pasta to a large serving dish
Whisk lemon zest, lemon juice & 3/4 teaspoon salt. Season with pepper. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until emulsified. Drizzle over pasta, & toss until well coated
Add beans, pine nuts, & grated Parmesan. Toss until evenly distributed. Just before serving, fold in arugula, & top with shaved Parmesan.
(i did make a few adjustments, which are included in my recipe above).
