Tasty Tuesdays

This recipe is from Bob Greene's Best Life Cook Book that was recently featured on Oprah. I tried it that same night and it was mouth watering. I will make it again for sure. Oh, I can't forget to mention that not only does this recipe taste yummy but it is good for you too!

I am forgetful so unfortunately I don't have a personal picture of this recipe but I like it when posts have a picture so this picture is an impostor that looks pretty close the the real deal.

Shrimp and Edamame Rotini

3 C. rotini
1 1/2 C. edamames, thawed
1T. Olive Oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
