Directions

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium/medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, for one minute or so. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring frequently, until almost tender (about 5 minutes). Add the chickpeas and lemon juice and cook for a minute or two more until the broccoli is cooked to your liking. Add the pasta and stir well until heated through. Stir in the parsley and top with a bit more lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper, if you want, and serve.
