Pasta e Ceci
Pasta with Chickpeas
by James Belardo

This simple recipe may taken directly from Cucina Povera but it tastes exquisite. While on a trip to Calabria in southern Italy, we had the privilege of tasting a couple of homemade dishes, this was one.

Ingredients
1 can Chickpeas, drained
1 carrot, diced
1/4 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup hand crushed tomatoes
1 cup white wine (Pinot Grigio)
1-2 bay leaves
olive oil
pasta water, 1 or 2 ladles – to taste
Salt and Pepper – to taste
flat-leaf parsley

Starch
Ditali

Directions
1. While boiling the water for the pasta, sauté onions and garlic in 2-3 tbsp of olive oil
