E is for Endamame and Ricotta Pasta
Our farewell to the Edamame Bean came from a suggestion from a blog comment left by Wellunderstood. We mixed the cooked edamame beans with penne pasta, grated parmesan and ricotta cheese, a handful of lardons of bacon and I added a generous handful of chopped basil leaves. Speed of consumption is a key indicator in our house and this meal was eaten by Alexandra and Freddie with indecent haste. Freddie said "These beans are as good as meat. And they're green!" This has to be the perfect food for a veg-phobic. Both children scored the meal a nine out of ten. We move on....and boy have we found a good one.
