Recipe from Eat Better America

This looked like a really simple weeknight meal that would be quick and cheap to throw together.

I thought it was pretty good.  I would recommend adding a bit more salt and some pepper.  And it’s definitely better same day.  It’s not a rave recipe, but it’s something I’d make again for a quick fix. 🙂

Ingredients:
12 ou uncooked whole grain or whole wheat pasta (I used rotini)
1 1/2 c frozen sweet soybeans
1 c soymilk
1/4 c chopped fresh or 1 T dried basil
1 T olive oil
1 t salt
1/4 c grated Parmesan

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions in salted water.  For the last 6 minutes of cook time, add the soy beans to the pasta.  Drain and return to pot.

In the meantime, in a food processor mix the remaining ingredients except the cheese.  Blend until smooth and then add to the pasta.

Cook the pasta with sauce over low heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until heated through.  Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese.  Serve immediately.
