Greek Pasta With Chickpeas and Garlic Lemon Sauce (Makaronia Me

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lecole54

Our little community in Maine occasionally does ethnic-themed potluck dinners. Found this on an ethnic foods website and made it for Greek Night (figuring everyone else would do the usual spanakopita, mousaka, etc.) The fresh rosemary really makes this dish -- you might even want to up the amount a bit!

This was superb flavour, my only dissapointment was that the recipe didn't seem to yeild enough sauce when I upped the serving. Thank you for sharing.
