I know there are chickpea and pasta recipes out there, but this is my own take on it. Its fast, easy, cheap and nutritional. I bring it for lunch sometimes too.
Chickpea Pasta with Red Peppers
1 c of dry spiral pasta, cooked
1 can of chickpeas, drained
1 red pepper, diced
3 Tbsp tomato sauce
2 Tbsp water
Basil leaves (optional)
I saute the chopped red peppers and add the chickpeas, tomato sauce and water after a few minutes. I add the cooked pasta and remove from heat. I toss the torn leaves of basil and let the dish sit for a few minutes. Serve - the colours are magnificent!
