I’m too tired to think of a title

This may be the best dinner I’ve ever made in under ten minutes.

spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes and chickpeas

spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes and chickpeas

Here’s the recipe:

  1. Bring 3 cups of broth and 3 cups of water to boil in a large pot with some salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper
  2. While it’s heating, roughly chop a dozen or so dried tomatoes
  3. Add the tomatoes to the boiling water/broth
  4. After another minute or so, add 12ish ounces of spaghetti (most of a box)
  5. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes
  6. Add 2 cups (or a can, rinsed and drained) of cooked chickpeas
  7. Stir and reduce heat
  8. After everything is heated through, serve
  9. With cheese

It tasted good but did nothing to help with my mid-week fatigue. I’ll be back with equally exciting fare tomorrow. Or sometime. Maybe not tomorrow. It’s supposed to be in the 70s here and I’m sure I’ll want to be out in it. Or sleep through it. Whichever.

    Sounds delish. I might suggest a slight modification, maybe between steps 5 and 6, perhaps even 5b if you will, that involves draining the pasta.

    Oh, and a step 10, cupcake bowl. Because those really seem awesome.

    Donna,

    Actually, that’s not a mistake. There is no draining. The pasta and tomatoes absorb the liquid. That’s why my extremely precise measurements (i.e. “most of a box”) are so important.

    A cupcake bowl would have topped off the meal nicely. If only I’d been awake late enough to read your comment.
