As you may know, I am not a fan on pasta, but once again I found myself wanting pesto pasta. After figuring out it was really just the pesto I wanted, this is what I came up with:
1 cup cooked chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1/2 bunch basil
2 Tbl. chopped sun dried tomatoes
2 Tbl. pine nuts
salt and pepper to taste
1. Saute the chickpeas with some garlic and olive oil until the chickpeas are cooked all the way through.
2. Prepare the pesto. Food processors are best for this job, blenders second best, and mincing with a knife is third. My food processor left, the blender broke and I was left with a good sharp knife (I could write a country song!) Basically, process, blend, mince, everything together. Add some olive oil and mix until pasty.
3. Mix together and serve warm.
