If using fresh green beans, cook in a covered saucepan in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook pasta according to package directions, adding the mushrooms, frozen green beans (if using), and green onion during the last 4 to 5 minutes of cooking. Drain pasta and vegetables in a colander. Set pasta mixture aside.
