    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    On Sundays I cook with weekday lunches in mind, favoring big pots of tasty dishes that reheat well in the microwave at work. This low-fat, whole grain, high-fiber and vegan pasta dish is full of some of my favorite foods - Green beans, chickpeas and pasta. Mmm. Nutritional yeast adds B-12 and other vitamins and a slightly cheesy taste, though folks who love cheese can try parmesan or Romano instead. Bob's Red Mill and Red Star brands of nutritional yeast are both gluten-free. I use a Tinkyada's Gluten-Free Spirals, but you can use regular rotelle / fusilli if you prefer.

      I LOVED this dish. It was fragrant and flavorful and healthy and FILLING! I made the recipe as written, using whole wheat rotini, except I omitted the crushed red pepper flakes (small children). I actually wasn't expecting to like this as well as I did... and my 15-month-old twins gobbled up their pasta and loved the green beans.

      We really enjoyed this but I want to comment without stars. We're serious "spicers", but the crushed red pepper flakes overpower any of the delicate flavors in this. Fresh basil is lost in the wake of all that fire. I WILL make this again because it's tasty and low-fat, but next time I'll just put a pinch of crpf or cayenne. Thanks for creating such a healthy dish.

      Changes: We skipped the shallots since we didn't have any, and used extra green beans. I forgot to double the canned items when I doubled the recipe, but I think the chickpeas were better this way, while the tomatoes would've been better at full proportion. I missed the sea salt and pepper since the instructions printed onto a second page and I was following that instead of looking at the ingredients list. Where *do* you add those in, anyway? Results: We both thought it was very good. Scanting the pepper flakes so they didn't overwhelm was a prudent move. I used the minimum on the vinegar, and that was about right for me after giving it time to "off-gas" since I am pretty sensitive to the smell of vinegar. I have never used nutritional yeast on anything but popcorn before, but it worked beautifully to make just a light tangy coating. Quantity: I would guess that doubling the recipe gave the two of us enough for maybe four meals as we don't tend to eat additional sides with pasta dishes.
