While the exact recipe changes with the region, this classic dish of chickpeas, pasta, and rosemary is served throughout central and southern Italy; a drizzle of aromatic rosemary-chile oil finishes the dish to delicious effect. If you don’t have a Parmigiano-Reggiano rind for making the sauce, shave some cheese over the pasta before serving.

Perfect comfort food. Rosemary oil is essential. It's the kind of recipe that you can lots of different vegetables or meat to and it will still be delicious.
Just by reading the recipe I knew it needed more ingredients so I added quite a bit more peppers, all colors, red, yellow and orange. I also added finely julienned carrots and asparagus cut thin so that they would cook evenly. I feel that without these added veggies, the recipe would have have dull. Turned out to be a hit! I've made it twice now
Made this for dinner tonight and was in kind of a rush so I forgot to drizzle the rosemary oil on top. It was still delish! Tried a bit with the oil on after and it was even better. I used whole wheat penne as that was what I had, and added some sliced Italian sausages. I cut the recipe in half and was still enough for 4 portions. Simple ingredients and very inexpensive. Will make again!
not tons of flavor -perhaps more peppers - did add chicken broth
