    Chef Kate's Note:

    This sauce is so rich and satisfying that you forget that it is vegetarian and quite healthy. I use homemade pappardelle, but any wide noodle or even lasagna noodles or any pasta of your choice will work just fine. With a salad and bread and wine and cheese, it's a lovely meal. Feel free to add more garlic and more chili pepper if you like.

      This is good. I made ours gluten free serving with rice macaroni. The instructions have an issue though as no where does it say when to add the blended chickpeas. I just added them along with the whole ones which is probably what is supposed to be done. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, no dried chili but I served it with Red Tabasco sauce for those who wished for some heat, I used double the amount of garlic, dried basil as that is what I had on hand, chopped canned plum tomatoes, sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients. I served it without cheese for a vegan/dairy free meal! Made for Veggie Swap 33 ~ April 2011.

      This tasted so bland as I was preparing it and had the first few bites. But, inexplicably, it got better and better. My SO and I are both sold and will definitely make it again. I served it as a sauce over angel hair, because that was all I had handy. We substituted 1/2 tsp cayenne for the dried chili and 3/4 tsp dried basil for the fresh basil and stupidly forgot the parmesan (maybe why it seemed bland at first?). I used the 1/2 cup of olive oil, and it didn't seem overly oily, but I still can't believe it needs that much. Next time I'll probably try it with 2 Tablespoons oil and the rest in water and see how that works out.

      Very yummy. Like the previous reviewer, I added the pureed chickpeas with the tomatoes and whole chickpeas. I made almost to the recipe except I only had dry basil. Also, I used this with about 1/2 lb of pasta because it seemed like it would be too dilute otherwise. Would make a good soup too.
