Chickpea & Chorizo Fideos

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 package whole-wheat angel hair pasta , (7-8 oz), broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped Spanish chorizo , or pepperoni (about 2 oz)
  • 1 14-oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 15-oz can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 3 scallions , (1/2 bunch), sliced
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add pasta pieces and cook, stirring, until toasted and browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add garlic and chorizo (or pepperoni) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, water, wine and the toasted pasta; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and scallions and cook 1 minute more.
Notes: Brittany used whole wheat pasta and substituted water for the dry white wine, which we did not have. Brittany and I both thought this recipe was good, but not necessarily great. Nice for variety but probably won't become a regular at our house.
