“This quick, one-pot version of fideos, a toasted pasta recipe served in Spain, gets a smoky flavor from delicious chorizo. If you can't find Spanish chorizo, pepperoni works well in its place. Serve with a green salad drizzled with sherry vinaigrette. ”


    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • ½ package whole-wheat angel hair pasta (7-8 ounces), broken into 2-inch pieces
    • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
    • ½ cup chopped Spanish chorizo or pepperoni (about 2 ounces)
    • 1 14-ounce can petite diced tomatoes
    • 1½ cups water
    • ½ cup dry white wine
    • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
    • 3 scallions ( ½ bunch), sliced


  • 1 Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add pasta pieces and cook, stirring, until toasted and browned in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  • 2 Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add garlic and chorizo (or pepperoni) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, water, wine and the toasted pasta; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and scallions and cook 1 minute more.
