Reviews for Linguine with Edamame and Tomatoes
"Love it. Made it twice in one week. Easy and tasty!"
"We love this recipe! It was flavorful and surprisingly filling for a meatless entree! Bonus: it comes together fast!"
"I made this for my daughter and myself, so I cut it in half. Did not have oregano, so I added 1/2t. dried basil, and one frozen cube of fresh basil, which I saute'd along with tomatoes, garlic, dried basil and salt. I use Crazy Jane's Mixed up salt. Left out the green onions. One clove of garlic, was plenty. Used frozen Edamame, in the pods, so I had to cook them first and then add to the already cooked pasta. I may try adding cooked chicken breast or crumbled sweet Italian sausage next time I make this."
"We had this for dinner last night and my husband and I agree it's a keeper. We enjoyed the blend of flavors accented by the salty bite of feta. This one is going in our file of regulars worth repeating."
"Overall great recipe, but does need salt & pepper to taste."
"I thought this was pretty bland. I wouldn't make it as written again."
"A wonderful change of pace. I did not have edamame so I substiututed with zucchini. Next time I will use 2 garlic cloves as it was a bit strong for our taste. I will make this again!"
