80--- Edamame Pesto Pasta

This hardly counts as a recipe.

It's more of a "I had zero time to prepare a meal and look what I came up with".

Vegetable protein, healthy fats, and whole grains come together to form a lovely, fast, weeknight meal.

Edamame Pesto Pasta
Serves 4

16 oz whole grain pasta of your choice, cooked al dente
1/3 cup pesto (check out my Kale & Caper Pesto or my Hawaiian Pesto)
2 Tbsp pine nuts
2 cups frozen shelled edamame, cooked in microwave for 3-4 minutes

Combine all ingredients and enjoy! Really-- it's that easy.
