1 x (400 g) can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 roasted red peppers from a jar
2 tbsp tomato paste
250 g penne pasta
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
60 ml water or vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh basil leaves for garnish


Combine the chickpeas, roasted red peppers, tomato paste, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, and olive oil in a blender. Add water or vegetable broth to help blend into a smooth sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the penne pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, then drain the pasta.
Return the pasta to the pot and pour the chickpea and roasted red pepper sauce over the pasta. Heat over low heat, stirring gently. If the sauce is too thick, add the reserved pasta water a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
Serve the pasta hot, garnished with fresh basil leaves. Optional: top with grated Parmesan cheese or a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.
