Potatoes and Beans with Radish Leaf Pesto

We bought the most beautiful bunch of red globe radishes at the market the other day and the attached greens were just too beautiful (and healthful) to pitch. I made a pesto with those greens and then added that to fresh green beans and small red potatoes. YUM!

1 bunch washed radish leaves, dried and trimmed of stems
1 handful almonds
2 garlic cloves
some salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup olive oil

Whirl this up in a processor--adding more oil if too thick.

Bunch of fresh green beans, trimmed
container of small red potatoes, cut in half

Bring large pot of salted water to boil, add the potatoes and cook for ten minutes and then add the green beans for another ten. Drain and toss with pesto.
