Chickpea Pasta - Very very easy

Just been trying new recipes on my two children & whilst searching the internet I found this. I have adapted it slightly to make it SW friendly & the results are really quite nice. I thought it was good as it can be frozen which is a great time saver!!

So here goes:

(serves 2 adults and 1 or 2 children)
  • 1-2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, chopped
  • 1 crushed clove garlic
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped (or 1/2 can chopped tomatoes)
  • 1 tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 150-200 grams Macaroni
  • Rosemary to taste
  • Crushed chilli flakes to taste
Spray a pan with frylight & add the carrots, celery and garlic and gently fry for a couple of minutes until the celery is beginning to be translucent.

Add chickpeas, rosemary, tomato, stock cube, chilli and a 1/2 can of water.

Simmer covered until the chickpeas and carrots soften slightly (about 5 minutes), then uncover and let the liquid reduce slightly. Turn off the heat and let it rest.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta to manufacturer's recomendation, then combine.

I added some grated cheese for my children, you could do this using HEa.

If freezing, freeze in portions before adding the cooked pasta.
