Ingredients

  • 8 oz. spaghetti, broken into thirds
  • 1 15-oz. can low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbs. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs. harissa, or 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 tsp. saffron threads
  • 1 lb. mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (about 1 tsp.)
  • 1 lb. spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pasta on baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until golden, shaking pan once or twice to brown evenly.

2. Bring vegetable broth, 2½ cups water, tomato paste, harissa, and saffron to a simmer in saucepan. Reduce heat to low, and keep warm.

3. Heat large stockpot over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Add mushrooms, and cook 7 minutes, or until browned. Stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in pasta and 2 cups hot broth. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently. Add spinach, chickpeas and remaining broth. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes more, or until noodles are tender and most of broth is absorbed, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
