Source: Everyday Food, April 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 sprig fresh basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
  • 12 ounces medium pasta shells
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium. Add garlic and red-pepper flakes, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds (do not brown). Add chickpeas, season with salt, and cook 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until sauce has reduced slightly, 20 minutes. Add basil, and cook 5 minutes more. Remove basil.

  2. While sauce is cooking, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente; drain pasta, and return to pot.

  3. Add sauce to pasta, and toss. Serve with Parmesan, and garnish with torn basil.

    @martha4evah : I checked my April 2009 issue of EDF and here is the nutrition info that accompanies the original print version of this recipe : (per serving) 662.3 cal 9.2g fat 1.3g sat fat 25.5g protein 120.9g carb 18.3g fibre martha4evah 19 MAR, 2014 I like this recipe for its midweek ease, but I wish wish wish the nutritional information for these recipes appeared somewhere. I feel like there was an index with this info in the original Everyday Food but I don't have that any longer.

    The button is to the left of the page, below the Facebook and Twitter buttons. Or if you screen is small, it appears under the title.

    Very easy, the sauce was tasty. I used vegetable broth for a quick vegan meal, sprinkled with nutritional yeast instead of parmesan.
