Thunder & Lightning Pasta
This dish gets its name from the sound created when the vegetables and pasta sizzle in the pan. The Thunder & Lightning Pasta makes a great vegetarian dish — it’s filling and the chickpeas provide protein. Just increase the portion size by doubling the recipe.
Cook orecchiette in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over high. Add chickpeas and squash; cook until squash is tender, 5 minutes. Stir in orecchiette, broth, reserved pesto, garlic, and zest; cook to heat through, 3–4 minutes.
