Pasta CeCe

Pasta with chick of my favorites! This is a good meatless meal (use white wine and pasta water in place of chicken stock) for lent. Here's how I make mine:
1 can chick peas drained and rinsed
2 onions sliced thinly 
4 cloves garlic chopped or crushed
Olive oil
Crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper
Fresh parsley chopped
A few splashes of chicken stock
1 lb pasta
While pasta water is heating, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. 

Once they are cooked down and carmelizing, season with salt and pepper
And add chick peas. Mash them a bit to break them up or else they will roll all over the plate when you eat. 
At this point you need a little liquid to loosen everything up. A few good splashes should do it (appr. 1cup)
Add parsley and check seasoning. Toss with cooked pasta and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of grated cheese.
