Pasta e Ceci …
… every year I make a promise to myself that I will have a normal amount of Halloween sweets and treats and every year I break that promise . I blame it on being caught in the excitement my children create ! 😬
So after a day of indulgence, I crave something simple , frugal , wholesome and nourishing . And a bowl of this pasta is the best kind of detox !
I went for Ottolenghi’s version of this traditional mid-western Italian dish, from his book Simple, where he takes it to another lever by adding za’atar , cumin and lemon zest .
