Mustard Egg Noodles with Green Beans

I'm always looking for a great side dish, and this is a definite keeper!  Egg Noodles and Green Beans tossed with melted butter, grainy mustard, and a bit of salt and pepper. Wonderful!  Original recipe from Cuisine at Home.

8 oz. dry egg  noodles
8 oz. green beans, trimmed and cut into 1" pieces (fresh or frozen - I used French cut frozen)
5 tbls. butter
2 tbls. course-grain mustard
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook egg noodles in a pot of boiling water according to package directions.  In the last 3 minutes of cooking, stir in the green beans; drain noodles and green beans.  In the same pan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in mustard, noodles, green beans and parsley and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Makes 4 servings.
