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.

With all the extra time I saved you with this easy recipe – perhaps you should check out MY BOOK on AMAZON???  Reviews are great – and from both men & women!  Why not check it out?

Serves 2


1/2 lb pasta

3 garlic cloves – chopped

1/4 cup fresh mint – chopped

Feta cheese to taste (I used a piece about half the size of a deck of cards)

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 ( and PROTECT ( 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.
