Quick and Easy Garbanzo and Tomato Pasta

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This dish comes together in about 30 minutes. If I have the time I usually cook the sauce for longer to allow the flavors to deepen. This goes well with a nice spicy red wine. A friend made this for me, and it has been a staple ever since.

I added two cloves of garlic which I cooked with the onions. Also added about a cup of cooked spinach for some color. A nice easy dish with a good flavor.
