Chickpea and Pasta Soup

Charles E. Walton IV

Use good-quality anchovies, which add depth of flavor, in this recipe. If you think you're not an anchovy fan, give them another chance. Those in a glass jar often taste less fishy than the tinned ones. You can also omit, if desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 anchovies, finely minced (optional)
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with roasted garlic
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces uncooked ditalini or other smaller macaroni-shaped pasta (about 3/4 cup)
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Garnish: fresh rosemary or parsley

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic, rosemary, and anchovies, and sauté 1 minute. Add tomato and next 4 ingredients, and bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Add pasta; simmer 11 minutes or until pasta is al dente (softened but still firm). Stir in kale and parsley, and cook 5 minutes. To serve, top with Parmesan cheese. Garnish, if desired.
  2. Note: The soup thickens as it stands. To reheat, thin with water or additional chicken broth.
