Yields1 Serving

 1 Box Barilla Chickpea Casarecce
 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 2 garlic cloves, minced
 1 cup zucchini, cut into juliennes
 ½ cup fresh lemon juice
 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
 ¼ cup vegetable stock
 1.50 cups fresh spinach

In a sauté pan, heat your extra virgin olive oil and quickly sauté your minced garlic. Add your zucchini to the pan and gently sauté for 3-4 minutes, adding your red pepper flakes and seasoned with salt and pepper.


In a large pan, boil salted pasta water and cook your Barilla Chickpea Casarecce until al dente.


Deglaze your vegetable pan with your lemon juice, then add your vegetable stock.

Keep your pan on low heat during this process to help it along. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy this bright, fresh pasta dish!
