CHICKPEA GARLIC PASTA W/ LEEK & BASIL


End of September I asked my kids, if they wanted to do Lihaton Lokakuu, meat free October, this year. Happily they replied yes, but on one condition. I'd need to promise, I was not going to make a carrot & macaroni casserole I did couple years back during the same meatless month. They are apparently still traumatized by it.

This veggie pasta dish didn't seem to cause any serious consequences. They liked it. A lot.


CHICKPEA GARLIC PASTA W/ LEEK & BASIL

250g chickpeas (canned)
3-4 garlic cloves
1 big leek
1 dl olive oil
1/4 tl salt
black pepper
basil
parmesan
(350g spaghetti)
  1. Rinse & drain chickpeas. Peel and thinly slice garlic cloves. Chop leek in 1 cm rounds.
  2. Heat olive oil on a pan, add garlics and leek and lower the temperature. Sauté on really low temp until soft, don't fry or burn. (Cook spaghetti in the meanwhile.)
  3. Add chickpeas, heat up, add salt & ground pepper to taste.
  4. Mix with cooked spaghetti, serve with fresh basil & parmesan.
