Cooking with Mamma Anna Maria: Sagnette with Chickpeas

Reading Time: < 1 minute


  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Chickpeas
  • Homemade tomato sauce
  • Sagnette (little pasta sheets)  or other similar short pasta

To add more taste, include thin slices of red onion and/or crushed chili peppers

Cooking time: about 30 minutes. (Takes a little time but it’s cozy on a cold winter day!)


Heat a saucepan. Add the extra virgin olive oil, the chopped sweet pepper, 1 garlic clove and the homemade tomato sauce.
Add the chickpeas halfway through the cooking time. Cook until the chickpeas have absorbed the tomato sauce.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of lightly salted and boiling water, until “al dente”.
Drain well the pasta and then add the chickpea sauce.

Transfer into serving plates.
If you like sprinkle with some crushed chili peppers and thin slices of red onion.

Buon Appetito!
