Recipe Ingredients for fire roasted tomato pasta with chickpeas and arugula

2 lb plum tomatoes
14 1/2 ounce can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp lemon zest
4 cups arugula
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
10 ounces whole wheat pasta

Recipe Directions for fire roasted tomato pasta with chickpeas and arugula

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise, spread out on a foil lined backing pan. Mix together the garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper, 1/4 cup of canola oil, and few pinches of salt and pepper; pour mixture evenly over tomatoes. Drizzle with another 1/4 cup of canola oil. Roast until soft and lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Crush half of the roasted tomatoes in a large bowl with a fork.

  2. Boil the pasta water, salt until it tastes like seawater, and cook the pasta until al dente. Reserve a little pasta water to loosen the sauce, if needed. While the pasta is cooking, heat remaining tablespoon of canola oil over a medium heat. Add chickpeas and arugula to the pan. Once chickpeas are heated through and arugula is wilted, add to the crushed tomato bowl with pasta and lemon zest; toss to mix. Add reserved pasta water as needed.

  3. Divide pasta among 4 plates, top with remaining roasted tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.
