I'm home working on year-end reports today, and made fantastic pasta for lunch. (It goes along with the whole "Mediterranean Diet" thing. Vegetarian, full of fiber, and loaded with veg.) Just wanted to share:

Pasta with Edamame, Spinach, and Tomatoes (1 serving)
1. Bring a small pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add 1/2 cup of your favorite shape whole-wheat pasta. Return to a boil, and cook.
2. When 5 or so minutes remain on the pasta, stir in 1/2 cup frozen shelled edamame and 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach to the pasta. Return to a boil, and finish cooking.
3. Test the pasta to be sure it's done. Drain. Return pasta and veg to pan. Stir in 1/2 cup diced canned tomatoes (no liquid) and extra virgin olive oil. Garnish with a little freshly shredded parmesan cheese.
