Lady Annina's pasta and chickpeas

Lady Annina's pasta and chickpeas

Chickpeas like prepared and served in every way; and I love especially the pasta and chickpeas, in all its versions.

Some time ago, on these pages, I recalled with nostalgia the wonderful pasta and chickpeas that prepared, when I was a boy, a neighbor.

One of the sons, having noted, took care to find her and to let me have:
I will offer it, prepared by me, below.

The original recipe is here, So as I have been forwarded a page to you reserved.

The following is the version adapted to tools and ingredients in my kitchen.

For example vegetable broth: I almost always have it ready at home (o in my magic freezer) And I have therefore limited to spice it with fennel, fennel and basil.

Instead I cut the potatoes into small cubes and put them to cook together with chickpeas already found.

For the rest I tried to comply as closely as possible to the original recipe, but enriching the fried onion with a couple tablespoons of diced carrots and celery and then passing, before adding the pasta, about a third of chickpeas and boiled potatoes to the mixer.

And now, starting with the ingredients, we start cooking!

The day before...

In the evening soak in water with a teaspoon of baking soda chickpeas; change the water and rinse them after the first hour.

In case you have a vegetable broth already available, prepare one in adding late aromatic elements.

Now you can start!

Put Heat the vegetable broth (if already available by enriching it dispenses with the aromatic elements and simmer half an hour).

As soon as the onion is softened, peel and dice the potatoes, add the chickpeas drained and rinsed.

Cover with the broth filtered. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and cook for the time needed (see note) which can in some cases reach three hours.

When the chickpeas are cooked, if you want to have a soup with more creaminess, spend a third of chickpeas (including potato and fried onion), with a little broth, and keep the mixer briefly aside.

If you still can not get it back again, remove the tomatoes, remove the peel and throw it back into the soup or add it to the mixer.

Taste and adjust, just now, pepper and salt

Bring to a boil and add the pasta:
here have been used of the thimbles but they are fine also the scraps of egg pasta advanced by other preparations or a mixture of broken pasta.
