Recipe Ingredients for pasta with chickpeas

16 ounce chickpeas
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
16 ounce of chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp rosemary, chopped
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 pound pasta
2 tsp oil
1 Salt
1 Pepper

Recipe Directions for pasta with chickpeas

  1. Heat oil in a deep pot, sauté onion, and garlic until soft. Stir in rosemary, and cook for another minute. Stir in tomatoes, red pepper flakes and salt and cook until tomatoes are softened. Stir in 1 cup of chickpeas (reserve the rest for later), 1 cup if water and heat through. Remove from heat, and blend the mixture until smooth. A hand blender is very handy for this job. Return to heat, keep warm.

  2. While you are preparing the sauce on one side, bring a pot of water to boil and cook pasta following package instructions. Pasta should be cooked, but still firm. Drain pasta and reserve 1 cup of cooking water.

  3. Mix cooked pasta with the chickpea sauce, along with the reserved whole chickpeas. The pasta should be slightly soupy, as it will absorb more water. Add some of the reserved pasta water, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. Serve with a garnish of crumbled cheese and fresh herbs. Omit cheese for a vegan version.
