    RedVinoGirl's Note:

    This may sound strange but I absolutely LOVE this dish! My 2 and 4 year old also gobble this up if I buy pasta similar in shape to the chickpeas. They can't tell the difference and devour this. This is a super easy and quick weeknight meal. I make this one often when my husband is out of town since it's a healthy, fast meal to feed the kids and I. This goes great with fresh Italian or garlic bread.

      This was a nice meal for a chilly night. I used 12 ounces of gluten free pasta, and I liked that ratio of pasta to chickpeas and sauce. I especially liked the consistency of the sauce (I ended up using about 3/4 c. of the pasta water) but felt that it was missing something. I added a few shakes of dried Italian herbs, and I think that gave it the oomph I was looking for. The cheese was a nice addition as well. Thank you for posting! Reviewed for PAC - Fall '08.
