Recipe For Thai Edamame Pasta

Recipe from an old friend


  1. 1 14-ounce box of penne pasta
    2 cups shelled edamame
    1 lime
    3/4 cup salsa (I used medium)
    1/2 cup natural peanut butter
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon ground ginger
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
    1 red bell pepper cut into strips
    1 cup chopped pea pods
    1 tablespoon of zest of lime


  1. Boil eight cups of water, then stir in pasta and frozen edamame. Cook pasta until al dente.
  2. In a saucepan, add juice of lime, salsa, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, and ginger. Heat until boiling, then turn off heat. If you like your foods hot, now is the time to add the cayenne pepper.
  3. Rinse pasta and edamame under cold water to cool.
  4. Transfer pasta and edamame to bowl, add cooled sauce, and veggies along with zest of lime. Mix well and refrigerate for at least an hour. It's even better the next day!

Serves eight.
