    This was good. I added 3 more garlic cloves, some sliced shallots, about 3 cups of fresh spinach (which wilted nicely) and some lemon pepper.

    This was delicious and very, very quick! I threw in some chopped asparagus that had been languishing in the fridge, too. :)

    This was very good! i omitted the veggies and just used the chick peas, and used a little chicken broth mixed in with the pasta water. I made it even more unhealthy by adding butter to the pasta first too. Next time I will make it with the veggies, I just didnt have broccoli or even cauliflower handy. All in all though, a great way to incorporate chick peas! I couldnt figure out what to do with them except hummus or in a salad. thanks!

    I'm gonna try this tonight using green chick peas from Trader Joe's, and minus the broccoli. Hopefully it'll still be good!

    Bookmarked! This looks great Marc. Chick Peas are my favorite. I use them in everything, though not in this combination.
