    kiwidutch's Note:

    We love Pancetta and pasta, so when I see a recipe with some of my favorite ingredients, I jump. This is a great and easy dish from "Cooking with the Soprano's."

    1. 1
      In large pot, cook pancetta in oil over medium heat until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until garlic is golden.
    3. 3
      Add chickpeas, tomatoes and parsley, bring to a simmer, and cook 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Crush some of the chickpeas with the back of a spoon.
    5. 5
      Add 4 cups water to pot and bring to a simmer. Add pasta and salt to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, until pasta is al dente, tender yet still firm to the bite.
    6. 6
      Add more water if necessary to prevent pasta from sticking to bottom of pot.
    7. 7
      The consistency should be just loose enough to require eating with a spoon.
    8. 8
      Let cool slightly before serving. Serve with coarsely ground black pepper.

      When I saw the chickpeas I knew I had to try this. I added a little fennel but made as directed otherwise. I like cooking the pasta in the sauce. It was well received by the kids. Thanks for sharing!

      Really enjoyed your recipe! Changed it a bit though... Used prosciutto instead of pancetta. I also cooked my pasta in boiling water while I was doing the sauce... I was scared to add it to the sauce - next time, for sure, I will take the plunge and do it your way!! All in all it was a really tasty pasta recipe that both my bf and I enjoyed! Thanks kiwidutch!!
