Chickpeas add the protein to this delicious vegetarian lunch or dinner. If you omit the cheese it becomes vegan.
I think next time I'll use a little less pasta and possibly add some zucchini. Overall, very good. Edited: 2/19/08 I made this again. This time I used less pasta and added zucchini and black beans. Much better! - 18 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I'm a brand new cook (talkin' about someone who cuts herself almost every time she chops) who had no trouble preparing this. I almost clapped my hands and jumped up and down when I tasted it. The flavors are great, and the dish as a whole is very satisfying, probably because of the chickpeas. Thank you for submitting this one. - 20 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Absolutely delicious! I did use less pasta than recommended, and whole wheat pasta was great, plus added zucchini - best thing is the receipe is awesome and quick! - 08 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
