“We pair toasty, whole-wheat pasta with broccoli and chickpeas in this hearty taste of the Mediterranean. Our versatile Hot Pepper Garlic Sauce--one of our most talked about sauces--is made in Southern Italy, famous for its fiery cuisine.” - by DeLallo Foods
Original recipe yields 4 -6 servings
- Boil a large pot of salted water to blanch broccoli. Once the water boils, add broccoli and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove broccoli with a slotted spoon. Rinse quickly with cold water and set aside.
- Add pasta to boiling water and cook for al dente texture, following package instructions. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water for finishing sauce.
- In the meantime, use a large saucepan on a medium-hot setting to heat Hot Pepper Garlic Sauce with olive oil, about 3 minutes. Add broccoli, sea salt and chickpeas to the pan. Cook until heated thoroughly, about 5 minutes. Introduce cooked pasta and a bit of pasta water to the saucepan with broccoli mixture. Toss well to combine. Cook together for another 2 minutes to marry flavors.
- Serve drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and topped with Parmesan.
