Yield: 4 Servings
|8 ounces||Dry chick peas, soaked|
|1 pounds||Elbow macaroni|
|2 \N||Garlic cloves, crushed|
|2 tablespoons||Olive oil|
|\N \N||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.
