Edamame Mushroom Penne with Toasted Sesame Seeds

Happy Saturday everyone. Dont you just love weekends?

We are having a very “Fall” day today, dark, cold and light rain. I am curled up on my sofa listening to the “Easy Listening” channel on the TV, with a cup of coffee in one hand and giving Cooper his neck scratch with other.

Fortunately, I made this recipe a couple of days ago, so it is all ready to post.

I have mentioned before that I have a pasta addiction, every few days, I have a craving for a pasta dish. I love traditional pasta, but try to use a brown rice version more often than not. I love the Tinkyada brand, it cooks up the best of all I have tried, and so far, I have not seen it listed anywhere for using GMO ingredients,

I always make enough to have leftovers the next day and this recipe tastes even better the day after.

Enjoy,

  1. I LOVE edamame. I can eat a bowl of them just with a dusting of fresh cracked black pepper and salt!
