Chickpea Pasta With Basil, Peppers, Mushrooms and Veg. Amazingly Simple Vegan, Gluten Free Pasta - Nom Nom Nom!

in recipe •  4 months ago

I don't usually use pasta in my cooking at all, mainly because I find it a bit 'empty' as an eating experience (meaning it lacks taste and maybe protein), plus I just don't know any great recipes. That has now changed since I have found Chickpea pasta and this awesomely simple recipe... Now shared for you!

Even the least experienced cooks will be able to recreate this, wowing friends and family in the process - I promise!

80g Cherry Tomatoes
200g Chickpea Fresh Pasta

  11. Keep everything moving for another couple of minutes and then add the cherry tomatoes.
  12. Next up, add the liquidised tomatoes and spinach.
  13. Mix everything together well and allow to simmer for around 10 minutes (or longer if you prefer).
  14. Boil some water in a pan and drop in the Pasta and some salt.
  15. Heat the paste for around 3 minutes.
  16. Drop the basil into the main frying pan and mix well.
