Roman Pasta & Chickpeas

Our lives have changed in the past month. We are sheltering in place in our homes due to the arrival of the coronavirus, so all work, school, cooking, and eating is now done at home. I no longer dash to get a poke bowl or go for lunch with a coworker, I don’t even really leave the house.

This comforting bowl of chickpeas and pasta, cooked in its own sauce, has become a weekly go-to lunch we can make quickly at home and eat while we work and help Leo do his schoolwork. Made entirely from pantry staples, it’s garlicky and satisfying, and is a small dose of reassurance in uncertain times.

We celebrated the end of a long week with this fresh, flavorful, garlicky steak. You start by blending garlic and salt into a paste, and then add fresh herbs, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and lemon juice. This sauce is called a salmoriglio – use as a marinade and then serve it over the sliced grilled steak.

Serve with roasted brussels sprouts or roasted broccoli, and Meiomi Pinot noir.
