Chick Pea Pasta with Red Pepper and Feta
Dang so I am sitting here watching TV and this commercial comes on for some L'Oréal lip stain called *bitten* and the spokes person is Jessica Biel, want....want to look like her....as I sit her eating my cheese typing up food posts! LOL
I often find myself enjoying a snack a littttttle bit too much and then I need some supermodel on TV to snap me out of it! So, thanks Jessica.
Here's the pasta.
8oz Penne Pasta
1 Red onion, sliced thin
I red pepper, seeded and sliced
2 tbs Olive oil
1 14oz can of chopped tomatoes
1 can of chick peas
1 tsp dried oregano
1 bay leaf
2 tbs capers
1/2 cup feta, crumbled
Boil pasta as directed and set aside.
In a sauce pan saute your onion and red pepper in your olive oil for about 5-8 minutes or well softened. Add in the tomatoes, chick peas, herbs and capers. Simmer mixture for about 10 minutes, remove bay leaf then pour over your pasta. Last thing to do is to add in your feta, toss and enjoy.
