Italian beans with pesto

1 pounds fresh green beans
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 large clove garlic, mashed
1/2 cup packed basil leaves
1/8 cup parsley leaves
1 tablespoon pine nuts
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Parboil the beans and drain. Make a pesto sauce by putting oil, salt, garlic, basil, parsley, and nuts in a blender and pureeing them. Add cheese and blend again. Dilute as needed with more oil or a little hot water. Toss sauce with the beans and serve at room temperature. Serves 4-6.
