Add chickpeas and edamame and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more. Add silver beet and cook for 2 more minutes, until silver beet is soft.
3 Add lemon zest (reserving 1 teaspoon) and juice and mix well. Add pasta water and stir, then add drained pasta and feta. Mix gently to combine. Season with black pepper, and garnish with remaining lemon zest and parsley. Drizzle over extra virgin olive oil just before serving.
