Yummy Green Pasta

It is Monday and time for The Kids Cook Monday! Be sure to follow the movement on Twitter and Facebook to get great tips for picky eaters.
Here is our post for the week:

I got the idea to puree edamame for pasta sauce from Michelle Stern when she was recipe testing for her new cookbook, The Whole Family Cookbook (like how I threw in a plug for our fav new cookbook? Click the link to purchase so Aud and family can earn a few pennies for new cookbooks). The recipe, sadly, did not make the final cut for the book but we love the idea anyway. And the girls get to use the food processor, enough said.

Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:

  1. Help gather ingredients
  2. Fight over who gets to measure and add ingredients
  3. Operate the food processor
  4. (Mo only) Help cook the pasta
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Assist the girls
  2. Cook pasta with Mo
We added a little chicken broth and prepared basil pesto for taste and served it with whole grain pasta. Edamame is great because it retains that vibrant green color. The girls will actually eat this dish even though it is made with something green. I like to keep a bag of frozen edamame around for nights when I don't want to make a heavy meal.
