Chickpea Pasta Salad

Chickpea Pasta Salad


A meal in itself! Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, have twice as much iron as other legumes and are high in Vitamin B.

  • 4 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups cooked pasta (bow ties, shells, ziti, etc.)
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas
  • 4 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup pimento, diced

In a large bowl combine vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, oregano, and oil. Add pasta, chickpeas, chopped parsley, and pimento. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Serves 10.

Excellet recipe thank you.
gotta say I didn't think of combining the chickpeas with the pasta before this.
I used sauteed yellow squash and green peas to add color since I did not have the pimentos. Absolutely excellent recipe idea for pre Yom Kippur. thank you. Reply

Must Try! This recipe turned out really good. I used organic extra virgin oil, fresh red pepper, and added lemon juice instead of wine vinegar.

Delicious! Reply
