"Pasta e ceci" translates to pasta pasta and chickpeas, and that's just what it is! The pasta and chickpeas are served in a light seasoned tomato broth, but not too much of it — so this dish isn't quite a soup, but also not quite a stew.
Store any leftover pasta e ceci in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The pasta will suck up a lot of liquid as it sits. You can add some extra broth while reheating if you'd like.
