Recipe by KIMBICA
"This is a home-style Italian favorite at my house. It is also very good with northern white beans instead of the chickpeas, and any sort of strand pasta works well. Serve with a leafy green salad and crusty Italian bread. If you like spicy food, stir in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes towards the end."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Pasta with Spinach & Chick Peas Haiku: "Gotta switch pasta. Can't decide, use fork or spoon? Taste was pretty good!" I followed the recipe, using spaghetti instead of linguine (close enough) but we were ultimately discouraged at not being able to both twirl the noodles and stab/scoop chick peas at the same time. If I make this again, I would use a smaller noodle, and let the tomatoes and chick peas simmer longer b/c our chick peas stayed more like pebbles than we'd have liked for the mere handful of minutes that it simmered in the instructions.
This is now in my menu routine. I used wine instead of oil or pasta water. We Loved Loved it
A very quick meatless dinner recipe. I increased the garlic and it tasted phenomenol. The best part is that it was so quick to make which is why I gave it 4 stars. Thanks for this quick and tasty recipe!
Delicious but would try a different type of pasta than linguine. With the chick peas a shorter pasta would be easier to handle.
