Loved it. Next time I'll reserve a little of the chick peas so and add them whole for texture.

Even my "meat loving" DH enjoyed this recipe!!! The chickpea and the pasta leave you completely satisfied that you don't even miss the meat!! Weight Watchers' friendly (with my changes) 10 points. I added more garlic (5 total)...added more tomatoes (3/4 cup)..cooked come broccolini in the pasta water and added some more parmesan cheese (about 5T) Really enjoyed this one....I can see us visiting this recipe again and again. Thanks for posting a winner!!!

Absolutely loved this!!! Chickpeas + garlic + lemon is one of my favorite combinations ever, and this was rich in all! I added some spinach to mine; just after mixing I threw in about three cups of raw spinach and heated it a minute or two just to wilting. Very fast, very easy. Fantastic! This will be making a weekly appearance on our table.

Wonderful creamy sauce without using any milk or cream! You definitely have to serve it immediately (or reheat it) because as the sauce cools it gets a little clumpy....but it still tastes great! I added in some green peas at the end!

I made this when the Cooking Light issue it was in came out. Very good. Easy ingredients that you are likely to have on hand. And it is a nice, hearty dish, for something so low-fat.

Surprisingly good. After following the recipe we were a little nervous about the way it looked but the taste and texture proved to be absolutely delicious. We were able to prepare and enjoy this meal in less than 30 minutes which was a huge plus. Thank you so much for posting!

Delicious and lowfat dinner! I saw this in CL and made it right away. The pasta sauce is an interesting combination of chicken broth, pureed chickpeas and garlic which is a bit unusual in texture but delicious. Grape tomatoes and a parsley garnish add color interest with a burst of flavor from fresh grated cheese. This is a recipe I didn't think DH would like but he suprised me and requested it again. Add a green salad, and a healthy vegetarian dinner is done is no time. Thanks, smiles4u, for sharing the recipe!
