Menu: Spaghetti with Edamame Pesto, Green Salad and Cupcakes
I really thought I would make split pea soup for last night's dinner, but then the temperature spiked up into the very, very high 50's for us and I didn't have it in me to make a hearty warming soup on such a beautiful warm day.
Instead, I wanted to make a pasta dish. I was thinking of a red lentil sauce that I sometimes make, but opted instead for an edamame pesto from Appetite for Reduction. Served not on fancy vegetable-y linguine but plain spaghetti, along with a salad and for dessert--cupcakes from Sweet Avenue.
I enjoyed this meal but I'm extremely partial to pesto, so that goes a long way, right?
