Grandma’s pasta and chickpeas
Pasta with chickpeas is a traditional, hearty dish of peasant origins which is perfect for warming you up of a chilly autumnal evening.
Canned peeled tomatoes
Make a good vegetable stock using celery, carrot, onion and peeled canned tomatoes. The stock must simmer gently. Next add the canned chickpeas and continue cooking, seasoning with salt.
When the stock is almost ready, add the pasta and cook over a moderate heat. Stir the pasta frequently with a wooden spoon so that it absorbs all the flavours in the stock.
After around 10 minutes the pasta should be ready; serve immediately in earthenware bowls, so the dish stays hot.
