Ingredients

    1 1/2 Cups Small Shell Pasta, Uncooked
    1/2 Cup Grape Tomatoes
    1 1/2 Cup Fat-Free Chicken Broth
    1 Cup Chickpeas
    3/4 Tsp. Salt
    1/4 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
    1 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley, Minced

Directions

1. Cook pasta in pot of boiling water until it reaches Al Dente. Drain, and set aside.
2. While pasta is cooking, spray a skillet with cooking spray, and bring to medium heat. Crush two of your garlic cloves, and cook in pan for about one minute. Add chickpeas, salt, pepper, and broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer about 15 minutes.
3. Place chickpea mixture in a food processor, and process until smooth in texture. In a bowl, combine chickpea mixture with tomatoes, lemon juice, parsley, and remaining two cloves of garlic, minced. Toss to distribute the sauce.
