Edamame Pasta Salad with Asian Dressing

First... I want to apologize because this late post. As I said at my previous post that I want to post a fresh salad recipe today, but with schedule on tight and lot's of things to do with the boys, pick and drop them at school and other thing to do in the kitchen, so it happen to be I forgetting write this post! :D

The photos is taken a few days ago so no need to do the photograph today, but I just wake up in the morning and planning to do a few baking activity... just like that... on the spot!
So today I make 2 pan of healthy breakfast muffin and 2 dozen of chocolate chips cookies. Ridwan  asking me, "Do I bake brownie too?" since I said in my post that I have to have something chocolately almost after every meal. Well... maybe I will skip for a dessert-dinner :P
Then I said, "since I bake 2 dozen of choco chips cookies then I have nothing to worried for a dessert after meal!" :D

And look at those beautifully ingredients!
A unique texture of the fusilli and the soft texture from edamame end up in one bowl... who said that it can be a great "married"?
And who said that the "Italian" can be together with the "Asian"?
And turn out great!
And the best part is that their togetherness is so easy to made and the important this is nutritious!
