Lemon Butter Bowties with Chickpeas

Updated on July 29, 2014

The easiest thing about this recipe for Lemon Butter Bowties with Chickpeas is that I can have all of the ingredients on hand and ready to roll whenever I please. The hardest part of making this dish is cooking the pasta, so with that in mind, this is a super easy dinner to make.

I like having chickpeas in this pasta dish for the added protein, especially if eating a vegetarian diet. This is also a fun dish to experiment with....think about adding additional vegetables or even fish or shrimp.

  • 1 tbls. olive oil
  • 2 tbls. salted butter

  2. Drain and return to pot, tossing with olive oil.

      I have never tried chickpeas in a salad. Will try this as I always have cans on chickpeas in my pantry. Thanks for sharing.

      I keep forgetting how easy it is to make a good protein dish with chickpeas. There are always some in my cupboard. I'll add them to my next pasta recipe for sure.
