Pumpkin Leek with Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine

I love experimenting with these fun guilt-free bean pastas from Explore Asian. I make my black bean pasta with olives and cauliflower all the time. It’s so filling and high in protein and fiber…what more could you want out of pasta, right? This time I tried the mung bean and edamame fettuccine style noodles and tossed them with a creamy leek and pumpkin sauce.

Mung Bean Fettuccine with Leeks and Pumpkin

This dish was so simple and tasty but is really more about the leeks than the pasta! I love cooking with leeks, they are so flavorful, yet mild…not too onion-y at all.
