 Ingredients List

  • 8 oz Dry chick peas, soaked
  • 1 lb Elbow macaroni
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 1 tb Basil
  • 1 tb Parsley
  • Olive oil for drizzling


Drain & wash chick peas. Cook for 50 to 60 minutes, or until tender.

Meanwhile, cook the macaroni in a large pan of boiling water, lightly
salted for 10 minutes, or until just resistant to the bite. Drain.

Saute garlic in a large skillet in olive oil for a few minutes. Add cooked,
drained chick peas & macaroni. Mix in the basil & parsley. Cook over a very
low heat, stirring occasionally, til the flavours are absorbed & the
mixture is heated through. Season with salt & pepper & serve hot with a
crisp green salad.
