This meal is fast and cheap, simply put. Not to mention filling and delicious! The chorizo gives it that extra punch, but don't worry--if you can't find chorizo, pepperoni will also work.

How to Make CHICKPEA & CHORIZO FIDEOS

Step-by-Step

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat. Add pasta and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until pasta is toasted and browned. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining Tbsp. oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat. Add garlic and chorizo, or pepperoni; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, water wine and the toasted pasta. Bring to a boil.
