Recipe Ingredients for Vegetable and Edamame Pasta Salad

40 oz penne pasta
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 sweet onion
3 garlic cloves
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 zucchini
2 tomatoes
1 cup Edamame
8 oz basil
1 avocado
2 oz lemon juice
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1 black pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 Kosher salt
1 pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Recipe Directions for Vegetable and Edamame Pasta Salad

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

  2. Sautee onion, olive oil, and minced garlic in a large skillet for about 5 minutes on medium heat. Add in chopped vegetables (except for the tomato) and edamame. Sauté for another 10 minutes. Reduce heat as needed.

  3. Meanwhile, add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for 9-11 minutes, being careful not to overcook. Pour into colander and rinse very well with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.

  4. In a food processor, make the basil cream sauce by processing the basil, water, olive oil, lemon juice, avocado, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes until smooth (or just about).

  5. Just before the vegetables are done cooking, add the chopped tomatoes, and cook for another 5 minutes until tender.

  6. Add drained pasta to the vegetables in the skillet. Mix. Now, pour on the basil cream sauce and stir until combined. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, to taste. Garnish with basil leaves. Serve warm or cold. Makes 4-6 servings.
