Meatless Monday — Spaghetti with Chickpeas and Spinach



This pasta dish has made an appearance in my kitchen quite often…usually on nights where I really don’t want to fuss too much over what’s for dinner. I guess you can call this pasta an old standby…you know, old reliable.

It’s got everything you need to make a complete nutritious meal…whole wheat pasta, spinach & onions, and garbanzos for nice boost of protein. I saute the veggies in one pan and marry it with the cooked pasta once its done. Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle parmesan and red pepper flakes and you’ve got yourself a nice meal. And if the kids aren’t into all of that…keep theirs simple like I do and serve them a nice plate of spaghetti with garlic and olive oil.

I know you’ll enjoy this easy weeknight (or weekend!) pasta dish…you can find the complete original recipe for Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Sauteed Chickpeas and Spinach on my blog, Aggie’s Kitchen.
