A quick note on watercress. It is not a green I normally eat which is why I love it so much in this dish!

It has a peppery almost spicy taste to it but wilted and mixed with the asian dressing it’s a perfect pairing and unbelievably delicious!

Some of my grocery stores sell it in a bunch, others loose. If you can’t find it, feel free to substitute spinach or another green.

Back to the dish — it comes together super quickly and in one pan!

The edamame and carrots cook up with the pasta.

Then, after reserving some pasta water, everything is drained into a colander than tossed back into the cooking pot where all the other ingredients are mixed in.

When the watercress wilts, it is ready to be served!

Such an easy, crowd pleasing meal. Tastes warm or room temperature.

Hope you love it as much as we do!
