Zucchini Pappardelle Arrabbiata with Chickpeas and Almonds

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 shallot
  • ¼ bunch basil
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 3 tablespoons grated pecorino cheese
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Mince garlic. Peel shallot and mince. Rinse basil and roughly chop leaves, discarding stems. Rinse grape tomatoes. Rinse zucchini. Using a vegetable peeler, peel into wide ribbons, or using a sharp knife, very thinly slice lengthwise. Place ribbons in a bowl of cold water and set aside.
  2. Roast Chickpeas Drain and rinse chickpeas. Pat dry with a towel. On a baking sheet, toss chickpeas with 2 tablespoons olive oil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Roast until crisp, about 18 minutes.
  3. While chickpeas roast, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in another pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add garlic, shallot, and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, 3 minutes. Add grape tomatoes and cook until beginning to shrivel, about 2 minutes more.
