Get a triple hit of soy protein in a fresh basil-and-pasta dish that's on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

12
oz uncooked bow-tie (farfalle) pasta (6 cups)
1 1/2
cups frozen sweet soybeans
1
cup soymilk
1/4
cup chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1
tablespoon olive oil
1
teaspoon salt
1
package (12 oz) soft silken tofu
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 In 6-quart Dutch oven, heat 4 quarts salted water to boiling. Add pasta; boil uncovered 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add soybeans; heat to boiling. Cook about 6 minutes longer or until pasta is tender. Drain; return to Dutch oven.
  • 2 While pasta is cooking, in blender or food processor, place remaining ingredients except cheese. Cover; blend on high speed, stopping blender occasionally to scrape sides, until smooth. Add to pasta in Dutch oven.
  • 3 Cook over low heat about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until warm. Toss with cheese just before serving.
