Here’s a big pot of goodness burbling away on my stove top. The main components are chickpeas, some sort of small pasta, and vegetable or chicken stock. After that, use what you have vegetable-wise. I used onions, garlic, zucchini, carrots, celery, and a whole bag of spinach! Along with two cups of broth I added two cups of water, and a can of Rotel spicy tomatoes. If you do not like spiciness you can use regular diced tomatoes. Bring the pot to a boil and simmer until the pasta is cooked through.
Garnish with sliced green onions, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese (optional.)
