Thunder and Lightning

This is simple but obscenely moreish.

Drain a can of chick peas and drop them into a pan of water.

Take the empty can and fill it one and a half times with either penne pasta or macaroni. Drop this into a big pot of salted boiling water.

Once the pasta has been cooking for a while, boil up the chick peas. When both are cooked, drain them.

Now, drop 4 tablespoons of olive oil into a pan and heat it. Next drop in two cloves of crushed garlic. Fry for about 30 seconds and then drop the pasta and chick peas in and stir it all up to get the oil covering everything. Bung in a load of black pepper and give it all a quick stir.

Spoon out into pasta bowls and top with either a dry grated cheese or some very strong cheddar, also grated.

I'm telling you this will vanish from the plate.

What I also added in was a chopped red onion and some nice crunchy sweetcorn and it was gorgeous!
