I will carb load any day if it means I get to eat this. I use slightly less oil than it calls for as a personal preference, and I cut the smashed garlic into about 3-4 pieces per clove after smashing it. It’s a nice, quick, vegetarian, but still balanced weeknight dinner. Was tasty as advertised. I’m hear to tell you that if you skip the finishing oil, and melt a kraft single into the saucy pasta bean mix right before serving, it is actually the same as spaghetti-os. I figured the combo of jet-lag and chilly weather was the perfect time to carbo-load and get some food-coma induced early sleep, so tonight was the night. I will be sure to try your recipe the next time I make pasta, although I will probably vegetarianize it by leaving out the pancetta and replacing the chicken stock with water. I actually tripled the recipe tonight because I knew we’d be longing for leftovers. Also, I was out of a kosher salt and a pinch of table salt worked just fine. Thanks for the great recipe! This is EXACTLY what I need to make tonight. Pasta e ceci (pasta and chickpeas) is one of Rome’s most iconic dishes, the only dish so essential that it shows up on both Tuesdays and Fridays on the informal meal calendar. We enjoyed both and he liked the two together. Freezes well. Thanks for a recipe that I’ll make over and over! I have made this 3 times since you posted the recipe :) I have yet to find cute little pasta shapes but have used whole wheat linguine instead, breaking it into 2 inch sticks and cooking just as long as needed. I made this, but added brussel sprouts and used shell pasta. http://joythebaker.com/2017/10/9-great-new-cookbooks-for-fall-2017/ This looks awesome. Looks so good. I think you can use sauce but it will be less present. I run because I ‘unapologetically embrace butter’ too! I make this often, and I’m eating leftovers for lunch right now so I figured I’d leave a comment! Directed them to your website when they asked for the recipe.Thanks, as always, for being a great go-to resource for all kinds of recipe needs/situations. My ‘buds are boggling. The bright green was gorgeous against the orange-red sauce, and I basically had a one-pot meal. I’ve Made it so many times! It seems to me the running and working out just make the good food taste better. So good! I added Italian Seasoning. Can’t wait to try it. The version I’ve made has spicy sausage and is served as a soup. I would say pasta sauce is a good substitute, but you’d probably want to add more than the paste. Thank you all! Rather than just drizzling olive oil on top, as is traditional, I love to heat it with some additional chopped garlic, minced rosemary leaves, salt and pepper flakes for a minute for a nutty, flavorful, slightly crispy, and dramatically sizzling finish, and alternative to the usual parmesan or pecorino, which is not unwelcome here, just not nearly as dynamic. What a great recipe for a quick meal when the carb-craving hits in the afternoon. Loved the rosemary garlic oil to top it off. Maybe i did something wrong but it tasted like something that should just fill you up late at night because you forgot to buy dinner. And instead of the finishing oil I rubbed a garlic clove on toasted baguette and drizzled some olive oil. Recipes. I usually double the recipe for a family of four. :). New here? I made it tonight and my kids loved the flavor but rejected most of the chickpeas due to texture issues (my reminding them that they love hummus was unhelpful). See, I happen to be right smack at the intersection of people who read food blogs avidly (and read cookbooks like novels), who embrace butter, wine and all things holy, who let the dishes pile up while I have one more glass of wine, AND love running marathons. It’s the pasta that needs cooking, and only for the 15-20 min stated. Delish! I seldom make or cook pasta recipes, much too scared. Took ~3-4 minutes. this looks like the perfect winter-padding recipe.:). Thanks for another scrumptious recipe. I am running the marathon on Sunday and this looks like the perfect thing to eat Saturday night :) Good balance of protein, carbs, healthy fats and not too much fiber. Late to the party here – this was SO good!!! ;o). Heck, the only reason I run is so that I don’t have to skimp on the butter! Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Everyone left some of the chick peas in their bowl. All I had in the pantry were chickpeas, garlic, 1/2 packages of egg pasta and whole wheat fusilli, red pepper flakes, and arugula. Just made a vegetarian adaptation of this recipe and added spinach. I really enjoyed this dish, but I found that when I used canned chickpeas, they were a little underdone. Ooh, and extra basil. This was great, thanks! How integral is the pancetta to the dish? Cooked perfectly in 15 minutes. Me and my friends all ran the marathon this weekend. This looks SO delicious to me! I made this Friday night with extra pancetta (my three-year-old is allergic to dairy, so I thought–add a bit more of the other good stuff). I had this one my first night in Rome. Result was a spicier (more adult?) Want to amp it up a little? Used a touch of red pepper flakes and was wonderful. Me, I run at the mouth, does that count? First time commenting but, add me to the list of marathoners who love the blog. This basic formula works well with many kinds of flavourings. Granof’s) don’t specify the heat intensity. Ahhh this made me both really hungry and makes me want to plan a trip back to Rome! This was absolutely delicious! This slightly had me worried for the outcome, but I really wanted to make the soup, turned out just fine. I skipped the finishing part, and instead threw dried rosemary into the pot while cooking. Made this last night and craving it again already. The only thing I would suggest was watching th cooking time. I also add some harissa paste to the tomato paste and a crap ton of rosemary while cooking it. It overwhelmed the dish. I may just try it tonight! Super easy end-of-the-workday meal that doesn’t hurt if it has to simmer for a while because you have to shower, put kids to bed, etc… I just added back some pasta water to thin out before serving. I’m not a runner, but I provide food and emotional support for one (my fault, I married him after all). I have been making a version of this (I think my recipe originally came from Fine Cooking) and I love it –I don’t do basil — I throw in either Swiss chard or spinach — but any version of pasta and beans spells comfort food to me! Instead of simply tossing hot pasta with lots of grated cheese and pepper (which will inevitably cause the cheese to seize up and clump), some recipes cover up any clump-age by adding cream or butter to the sauce — which isn’t true cacio e pepe. Just made this, and it is so good! I hear Saturday dinner calling to me already!!! Smitten Kitchen’s Pasta e Ceci This recipe has quickly become a staple in my kitchen. Not running the marathon, but I think you might be surprised at how many people who do run marathons also read your blog. Last night made Mark Bittman’s creamy chickpea and carrot soup. I ran the marathon and wish I had seen your recipe sooner! In this case, it was using the base for pasta e ceci and pulling a bit of inspiration from Zuppa di ceci e farro. I made this a little while ago, planning to eat later this evening. Pasta and chickpeas!? I love it. I also prepared 1/3 of your harvest chicken recipe for him (I don’t eat meat) to accompany this dish. So yummy! Tasty, easy and quick. :D. I soak and cook dried beans all the time as well, but Goya garbanzos are excellent. to provide more vegetables. I do believe the boyfriend and I might have this for dinner Saturday (have to wait that long, sadly, because that’s his next night off from work). Love the idea of adding baby spinach as well. Thank you! We all need more 20-minute dinner magic in our lives, so it’s not surprising that it’s already made the web rounds from Food52 to Dinner: A Love Story. Thank you! It isn’t called Pasta Fazool all over the world?? I am so skeptical of the all-in-one it-is-so-magic so-much-better-than-a-slow-cooker that I hesitate and yet I have stared at shiny Zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cookers for so long that I know I want/need a make dinner for family easy thingamajig. There’s so many things I want to add to this next time. Grate Romano cheese over all in plates to suit ones taste. I love your blog. I’m making this again tomorrow! Do you know if there is an authentic dish like this? I brined them by tossing a few teaspoons of salt into the water after I turned off the heat, then rinsed them and added fresh water for cooking. Perfection in my tummy and perfection for my doctoral student budget. This looks so interestingly similar to the recipe for Egyptian Koshary that I sent you last week. Since we began quarantine, I’ve been quadrupling this recipe for us to eat over several days (batch cooking has been SUCH a time saver for me). The only thing I did differently was that I covered the pot with a lid during simmering. Doesn’t cooking the pasta in the sauce mean you’re eating all the starch? OMG thank you for my first introduction to this recipe. Added a parm rind with the water and 2 C. of chopped spinach to wilt in the sauce at the end. I make it with stock rather than water. Like the multitude of other runner commenters, I do it mostly so I can eat all the yummy things, like everything you post. I used a chickpea pasta I had on hand. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly browned; a splatter screen will make your stove look better than mine did after this. I liked it MUCH better with homecooked chickpeas vs. canned, because of the softer texture. Thanks! Thanks for the recipe – It looks so amazing and delightful. Very tasty – my meat-loving husband asked for seconds. :). I didn’t have fresh rosemary, but I threw in some dried with the garlic and a copious amount of red pepper flakes, and the finish was divine. I have made this several times now, tripling the recipe each time, and use 825ml of water, which would confirm the 275ml in the original recipe. It seems like an odd combination at first, but it really works. Wish I had followed Deb’s advice and made a double recipe for lunches. Hey if your going to be down there…would you toss him a bowl as he passes by? This IS good. This sounds wonderful! This is an important step in quick soak. Perfect, quick, easy. This has been part of our regular weeknight rotation for a few months now — high praise from my family which includes at least one fickle young vegetarian and a cook with a terrible memory for good recipes. I did 2 cans of chick peas, cup and a half of orechiette (smallest pasta our terrible grocery store had), parm rind, and used the whole small can of tomato paste. oh my goodness this was delicious! Half marathon is my distance and that burns off a lot of butter! I made it with small whole wheat macaroni. I doubled the sauce recipe (except, I left the amount of olive oil the same). A carmelized onion dip with the chickpeas maybe? Runner, check, eater of all things buttery and starchy, check, early to bed…no check…..dishes….no, no, no check! Its like you read my mind! Return the purée and reserved chickpeas to the pot, and add the pasta. (The other 10% is from non-Roddy Roman food writers and the remaining 10% was gleaned on that vacation.). Thanks again Deb! I made this yesterday for lunch and ate the whole pot, and just did the same today (except I didn’t need a recipe this time!) Delicious and easy recipe for a week night. Even easier than using jarred sauce. The hubs will be running in San Antonio this weekend. This dish is amazingly simple yet so delicious! I add the Parmesan rinds as well. I made this with the addition of some diced up carrots for some extra veggie power. Another one of your wonderful recipes that is easily adapted to gluten-free. The two of us ate the whole yield–so much for leftovers! Bring on the carbs and butter! Looks amazing, particularly with the doubling up of the pasta sauce. I carb load even when I don’t need to…and that is probably one of the many reasons why I will never give up running. delightful! This is such a family favorite! Unfortunately the farinata was a bust and now we have an excess of flour. This is especially true as I enter my 30’s and my metabolism keeps trying to slow down and prevent me from all those delicious carbs. In fact, I just printed this off to make and share with my marathon partner for our carb-loading meal tomorrow (ours is on a Sunday). Your recipe looks fantastic and I have all ingredients on hand – thanks! For my family I would have needed to triple this. Also involved in this Pasta with Chickpeas – lots of hearty baby spinach leaves (my favorite! As I mentioned above, despite generally wishing for pasta dishes with less, not more sauce, I wouldn’t mind this dish with 1 1/2 to 2 times the sauce. I can’t believe it took me this long to make this – it’s the BEST pantry meal. This time too. So there might be more overlap than you think! I don’t remember — I’ll have to try again! The sauce sort of tasted like tomato-flavored water even after reducing it. ;). And I peeled the chickpeas. Thanks for posting this, we loved it! My kids love most beans except chickpeas…I wonder if lentils would work, being so small they might prove impossible or undesirable to pick out. I can roll with that. We’re anticipating some colder weather in the middle of next week, and I think I’m going to have to make this for lunch when that happens. I call it a workout! Some considerations: The portions were definitely too small for us (2 medium sized Dutch adults), but with a side salad it would probably be enough. And you’re so right about the sleep factor. My boyfriend and I loved it. Up until I tried the Channa Masala, I had dismissed chick peas as merely a topping that was only good for adding a little protein to a salad. This recipe is insanely delicious and so simple. Simple and easy to make and so good! Or does the starch not flow out into the sauce the way it does in boiling water? I have a feeling this one will be a regular in the fall/winter rotation! This was perfect after a Saturday of running all over doing Halloween activities.

Has anyone tried making this without the pancetta? also, i’d never thought to put chickpeas in pasta before, but it was super tasty, so thanks very much for the idea. Your blog is a delight. I thought this was delicious and easy, but my husband found it “a little ketchupy.” I could see his point. Place the garlic, chili … I tripled the recipe and it fed me, my husband, adult daughter and teen son – not a scrap left over. Camping! Perfection, yet again. I’m not sure I can call myself a marathoner yet, though. This is easy and delicious. The orechiette was fun because the chick peas kept nestling in them like they were wearing little hats . I often let them simmer for another 10 minutes in their own water, drain and then add the tomatoes etc. I will certainly be back. Its ready in under 20 minutes!
