Let’s set the record straight. Chickpeas are beans. Not peas like I thought.
I was really worried about this recipe once I found out chickpeas weren’t peas because I am NOT a bean lover. I’ll just put it out there. I am a baby about eating my beans.
But I love finding new healthy recipes and this is a good one. It’s got a lot of good ingredients and even a yummy one–bacon! It’s a simple spaghetti recipe that takes the traditional spaghetti to a whole new level. And yes, the beans are in there, but they don’t overpower the recipe. Rather, they compliment it. So even beanphobics like myself can eat it. And yes, as a psych major I believe that bean phobias exist. And I think I’m the first person to be diagnosed with it.
The best part about this meal? I got to meet a new online foodie friend. As a member of the Secret Recipe Club this month I’m surprising I Am A Honeybee! I probably spent a half an hour searching through her recipes. I narrowed it down to about five. But I was craving spaghetti, so this recipe for Spaghetti with Chickpeas won.
