Boil the pasta & string beans
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Remove the stem ends of the string beans; halve. Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until al dente. In the final 2 to 3 min., add the string beans. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Transfer to a bowl.

Make the sauce
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the demi-glace, cream, pesto, spices and ½ the reserved cooking water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until slightly thickened.

Combine the pasta
To the pan of sauce, add the pasta and string beans, and 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec., until warmed through. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
