Easy Soy Sauce Pasta

This morning the girls had a playdate over here so I had to make lunch for a bunch.Easy Soy Sauce Pasta

Easy Soy Sauce Pasta is a breeze to throw together and satisfies even the pickiest eaters.

This recipe is actually a variation on a dish my husband came up with: Pasta with Cucumbers and Nori. As I watched him pour soy sauce over penne I thought his creation reeked of bachelorhood. Then I tried it. As it turns out— it’s really good!

Since having children I no longer hold tight to snobbish rules about where you may and may not put your soy sauce. If it helps kids eat things they normally wouldn’t, I say— bring on the Kikkoman!

Easy Soy Sauce Pasta

Serves 4 adults. (Or a litter of kids)


  • 3/4 bag pasta (I used Trader Joe’s organic whole wheat penne)
  • 1/2 cup cubed baked tofu
  • 1 cup cooked edamame
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • Nori
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil



In a large bowl mix warm cooked pasta with equal amounts soy sauce and sesame oil. I did not give measurements here— just pour liberally. You don’t want the noodles swimming, but you want them covered. Add tofu, edamame and tomatoes. Top with slivers of nori.

Toldya- easy!
