We liked this a lot. The sauce thickened in a nice way and all of the flavors worked together very nicely. I used green onion in place of red and added additional garlic, and served with some shredded parm. Adding the parsley and cilantro at the very end makes for a nice, bright color in the dish. We have been using a lot of whole wheat pasta for a while now and have never been bothered by it, so that part wasn't a problem. My only thing is that I never have success with spag (or other 'stringy' pasta) and chunkier sauces, so I just used penne instead, and everything mixed together nicely. Thanks for a different and tasty dish!

Sorry, but I wasn't wild about this recipe. I didn't use whole wheat spaghetti because I don't like it...but I used everything else. But thanks for sharing

pretty good. Not a garbanzo bean/chickpea fan but heck this one is yummy. Added some sage to it though

Certainly a healthy meal and easy to make. I paired it with brown rice noodles, which I think went really well with this style of sauce. The spice combo wasn't quite right for me, maybe a little less of cinnamon and more of something else would have have done the trick, something was just a little lacking flavour wise. My children had it with feta cheese on top and thought it was pretty good, so maybe that's a good finishing touch. In any case, was a good recipe to try so thanks for posting! ZWT6.

I LOVED it! I'm always looking for creative ways to add protein to spaghetti so this was perfect. When I added the spices, I was afraid they were going to be odd/overwhelming (I think the yellow color probably puts people off), but it was a lovely combination of flavors, and the cilantro was a nice touch. This was easy to make, tasty, healthy, and filling. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting!

Very yummy and healthy too! I did use a little olive oil to sauté the onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Besides that, I followed the recipe to a T. I'll be making this again.

Sorry, but I wasn't wild about it. I didn't use whole wheat spaghetti because I don't like it...but I used everything else. I too, thought the cilantro strange (although I eat it all the time)...it just didn't seem to fit. But thanks for sharing it...it was certainly worth trying and I'll probably make it again.

This was delicious. I didn't use whole wheat spaghetti, and I added in a yellow pepper just because I had it on hand. Yum!

I really enjoyed the suace, it was really good. I especially liked the cumin and the turmeric, I thought it brought some nice heat to the flavour. But I think the cilantro was not necassary and was a bit odd with the other spices.
