Linguini w/Chickpea Sauce (M, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 2

3/4 cup canned (i.e., already soft) chickpeas/garbanzo beans
1/4 cup diced onion
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 slices turkey bacon, chopped
2 medium tomatoes (we had "Black plum" that were ripe), roughly chopped
2 tbsp. fresh basil/1 tbsp. dried basil
2 tbsp. fresh oregano/1 tbsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. fresh rosemary
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup white wine (dry) salt, pepper
1 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. olive oil

Heat the olive oil over a medium-hot burner.

Add turkey bacon and sauté until quite crisp. Add onions and continue to cook until translucent.

Next, add tomatoes, minced garlic and chickpeas and sauté for about 2 more minutes.

Add stock and bring to a light boil; reduce heat and add wine, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes. Cook just below boiling for about 1 more minute. Taste for seasoning. Add herbs and cook for about 2 more minutes.

Toss with linguini. Top with chopped green onion or chopped black olives.
