Directions

Heat the EVOO in a Dutch oven or large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the rosemary, garlic, chiles, onions and some salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the tomato paste, stir 1 minute, and then add the wine. To a food processor, add half of the chickpeas and the stock, and pulse into a fine chop but not a puree. Add the chickpea mixture to the sauce. Add in the tomatoes, breaking them up a little and add the remaining whole chickpeas. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook to thicken the sauce, about 20 minutes. Turn off and cool, then store for a make-ahead meal.

Reheat the sauce over medium heat, partially covered, adding a little stock or pasta water to thin, if necessary.

To serve, bring a pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Salt the water, and cook the pasta to al dente. Remove 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water and add to the sauce, if necessary. Strain the pasta and add to the sauce. Toss to combine for 1 full minute. Serve the pasta in shallow bowls topped with cheese and parsley.

    July 18, 2014 The ingredient list calls for 1 cup passata or tomato puree.
    There is no mention of that ingredient in the "Directions"

    ?????

    July 26, 2014 Since the directions were confusing, we used passata and omitted the can of whole tomatoes. It worked out to the right consistency.

    I thought the sauce was bland. Next time I would add one tablespoon of white vinegar to the cooking sauce. I would serve the dish with a 1/4 cup of chiffonaded basil leaves on top.
