Chickpea Pasta With Almonds and Parmesan

Total Time

I got this yummy and unique vegetarian pasta recipe from Real Simple, and that's just what it is! Crushed red pepper flakes give it a great kick, but if you're not into heat leave them out. The best part of this dish, it's all made in one pot, so cleanup is a breeze!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Stir in the garlic and cook for one minute.
  3. Add the broth, red pepper, and 3/4 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broth is nearly absorbed and the pasta is al dente, about six minutes.
  5. Stir in the chickpeas and parsley.
  6. Divide among individual bowls and top with the almonds and cheese.

Fabulous, unique pasta dish. For my hubby who enjoys meat I steamed a chicken breast cut it up and added it to his plate. I only used 4 cups of broth but other than that followed the recipe and it turned out great! Easy and tasty!

Great! So tasty! I had a big can of chickpeas in my cupboard that I had no use for till this recipe came along! I'm always trying to find new no-meat recipes that my husband will like and this was definitely one of them. A keeper.
