1 Clove garlic; minced
3 tb Parsley; chopped
1/4 ts Red pepper flakes
1 1/2 Cooked chickpeas; rinsed if canned
9 oz Farfalle or orecchiette
Salt and freshly milled pepper
3 tb Mixed Parmesan and pecorino Romano; freshly grated
1/2 c Bread crumbs; crisped in olive oil or toasted in the oven

Warm half the oil in a large skillet with the garlic, parsley, and pepper flakes. Add the chickpeas and 1/2 cup water and simmer gently over medium heat.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in plenty of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and add it to the chickpeas. Toss, taste for salt, season with pepper to taste, and add the remaining oil.

Serve covered with a sprinkling of the cheeses and/or the toasted bread crumbs.:
