DIRECTIONS

  • In large pot, cook pancetta in oil over medium heat until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until garlic is golden.
  • Add chickpeas, tomatoes and parsley, bring to a simmer, and cook 15 minutes.
  • Crush some of the chickpeas with the back of a spoon.
  • 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.
  • Add more water if necessary to prevent pasta from sticking to bottom of pot.
  • The consistency should be just loose enough to require eating with a spoon.
  • Let cool slightly before serving. Serve with coarsely ground black pepper.
