Recipe by Pamela Z
This recipe came from Jane Brody's Good Food Book. I have made it regularly for years, and it is always satisfying and delicious. You might want to double it and have sauce on hand the next day.
- 2 (15 ounce) cans chickpeas, divided (do not drain)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, preferably olive
- 4 large garlic cloves, minced (4 teaspoons)
- 1 1⁄2 cups thinly sliced onions (1 1/2 large)
- 1 (16 ounce) can tomatoes, drained and cut up, with liquid reserved
- 1 teaspoon rosemary, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup minced fresh parsley
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 lb spaghetti, cooked and drained
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
