Edamame mint pesto pasta

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente.


While the pasta cooks, combine the edamame, nuts, mint and olive oil in a blender or food processor and blend until chunky. Stir in the garlic and season with salt and pepper.


When the pasta is cooked, drain it well and return it to the pot. Add the pesto and toss until coated. Season with salt and pepper liberally to taste and top with the reserved mint.

You can serve this on a sliced baguette as an appetizer as well as with pasta. Edamame, green soybeans, are available fresh and frozen in well-stocked markets.
