This is so easy – it comes together faster than it takes for the pasta to cook. Clean & light and yummy enough that, if you are vegan, you could lose the feta & still have a flavorful dish.
Pasta with Mint, Feta & Edamame
1/2 lb pasta
1 TBS olive oil
3 garlic cloves – chopped
2 TBS lemon zest
1 cup edamame
1/4 cup fresh mint – chopped
Feta cheese to taste (I used a piece about half the size of a deck of cards)
Cook the pasta according to directions. Drain & set aside.
Chop the mint & the garlic. Zest the lemon.
Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic & saute a minute. Add the edamame & lemon zest. Add the pasta & stir to heat through. Add the feta & mint and some S&P to taste. Go light on the salt as feta can be very salty.
And that is all she wrote! It’s just that easy. Say – and guess what?
Exciting news! I’ll be performing live in a charity production of Eve Ensler’s critically-acclaimed play, “The Vagina Monologues” at the Atwater Village Theatre in Los Angeles (3269 Casitas Ave
LA, CA 90039).
The shows will be performed on May 16th, 17th & 18th at 8pm. Each night will feature a different cast of twenty actresses, from TV, films and theatre, and will be directed by LA Talk Radio’s Sheena Metal (“The Sheena Metal Experience”).
Proceeds go to the anti-abuse charities V-DAY (http://www.vday.org/) and PROTECT (http://www.protect.org/). This wonderful play, equal parts comedic and dramatic, is a celebration of the female spirit and the human condition that is not to be missed and I hope to see you there.
