In a large pasta pot, bring 4 quarts of water to boil. Add both pasta noodles and green beans (leave them long and whole). Add salt to boiling water. Cook until beans are tender crisp and pasta is firm to the bite, 10-15 minutes.
In a large skillet, add oil, bacon strips, and salt and pepper.
Drain pasta and green beans.
Toss the pasta and green beans into the skillet with bacon. Toss well, and add more oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
Serve in a large pasta bowl. Sprinkle toasted pine nuts and grated parmesan on top.
Serve with chilled white wine, and large loaf of crusty bread, and a bowl of seasonal fruit.
