Ingredients

Olive Oil

Chickpeas 

Spinach

Italian Seasoning

Salt

Vegetable Broth

Roasted Sundried Tomatoes 

Parsley

Smoked Paprika

Japenese Style Somen Hair Noodles (Important for texture Click Here to view the noodles I use)

 

 

Method

Step One

Snap 2 1/2 clusters of the hair noodles into fourths. Place the broken noodles into a non-stick skillet along with about a cup of vegetable broth. Bring to a boil and add to taste: chopped sundried tomatoes, Italian seasoning, chopped spinach (I use about a handful,) and salt. Reduce your heat and let noodles simmer on a very low heat until tender and spinach wilts. Stir in about two tbsp of olive oil. This process should take no more than 5 minutes.

Step Two

Cover your noodle mix and turn off the heat. Drain and rinse the juice off of your chickpeas. Place the chickpeas on parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Season with smoked paprika, salt, and parsley to taste. Broil on high until crisp.

Step Three

Take the crisp chickpeas and place on top of your pasta!

So quick, so yum!
