Chickpea Marinara over Couscous

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lorianne1

A quick and easy Vegetarian dish. Many times when I make this, I use a jar of spaghetti sauce rather than making my own sauce--makes it quicker and easier. You can also change the veggies you add to the sauce.

This was pretty good. I used a jar of Paul Newman's sockarooni sauce and added a can of diced tomatoes with italian seasonings. I just realized I forgot to add the parmesan, but we still liked the flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
