Whole wheat pasta with chickpeas

Submitted by: MEGS81

Introduction

This recipe is modified from one by ANGELAMICHELE1 (Farfalle with Lentils and Artichoke Hearts). I have switched chickpeas in for the lentils, and adjusted some of the amounts of ingredients.

Ingredients

    8 oz (4 servings) Whole Wheat Pasta (I used Trader Joe's Organic Rotelle)

    1 medium onion

    2 cloves garlic

    1/2 tsp ground coriander seed

    1/2 tsp ground cumin seed

    3 cups of canned tomatoes (diced or whole, if whole chop roughly)

    8-9 oz frozen artichoke hearts (about 1 package)

    15 oz can of chick peas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

    1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

    salt and pepper to taste (not included in calculations)

Directions

As you cook the pasta (according to package directions), saute the onions until translucent (I used olive oil but did not include this in the calculations, you could use cooking spray), about 5 minutes.


Add the garlic, coriander, and cumin and cook for another minute or two.


Add the tomatoes and artichokes, and cook for about 10 minutes. (You can cook for longer if you'd like, and it would improve the flavor, but this is the quick version.)


Add the chickpeas and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until heated through.


Add the drained pasta to the pan and stir to combine.


Sprinkle with feta cheese and serve.


I recommend salt & pepper at each step, not too much so that you don't overwhelm the flavor, but it helps if you build the flavors as you cook the dish.
