Pasta con Ceci

A friend on Twitter posted about this famous Pasta con Ceci recipe by Victoria Granof on Food52 Genius recipes and it immediately piqued my interest.

I’m also not the biggest fan of chickpeas unless in this delicious dish with chorizo, or into Yotam Ottolenghi’s creamy hummus. Continue Reading →

Just make sure your stock is quite mild or alternatively use a nice gentle vegetable stock. Chopped up exotic mushrooms and baby spinach were my additional fillings but really you can add anything that you like. Continue Reading →
