Comin’ atcha with another quarantine-friendly recipe! Hopefully one day you will be reading this recipe during a time where the COVID-19 virus is under control. No matter the state of the world and how often you’re allowed to go outside, pantry staple recipes are great. So, here’s a tasty and easy dish using 2 canned items: crushed tomatoes and chickpeas. The other pantry staples in this recipe are salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I also sprinkled some fresh Parmesan on top and served with greens, but you can serve these by themselves without parm or greens.

    This recipe is SO good! I never knew I liked chickpeas before making this. Only takes a few minutes. I like mine with crispy kale or broccoli!
