I cut the broth and pasta in half for two ppl and it seemed the right ratio with the chickpeas. Will make again.
I had the same problem with the broth...even after I cut it, it was if I had made a soup. Despite this, it was tasty and I feel it is a good meal to finish off extra stock in the pantry without a trip to the grocery store--since most ingredients have a longer storage life. I felt like it prevented me from wasting food.
Sunsets, The calorie count for this recipe was based on only 4 servings for the entire dish. One serving of pasta is only 2 oz. So by my estimation this dish should serve 8 which would cut the calorie count by 1/2.
I have made this recipe numerous times for many different types of people. Everyone loves it plus it's really simple. I read below that someone had to drain off extra liquid--don't do that you're getting rid of tasty stuff!. Make sure when you're cooking it that it really is simmering and stir it frequently. Then let it sit for 5 minutes or so before you serve it and the noodles will soak up the excess liquid or you can pour it off to save it to perk up any leftovers. You can also use slightly thicker spaghetti or linguini to give it a longer cook time.
I love this recipe so much!! I always have the ingredients on hand, and it makes great leftovers for work.
I just made the Chickpea Pasta with Almonds and Parm.. It was really tastie..I must have done something wrong though, I had to drain off the broth..It still turned out good.. I enjoyed it as is but I could see putting some lemon juice in it and maybe some zest. Just to give it a little zing. It will go into my collection..
