Spinach and Chickpea Alfredo

I have been having fun experimenting with different dishes these past several months and happened upon an amazing, easy Alfredo sauce, which is the base for this dish.  I added in some spinach and chickpeas, and here it is!

Gluten Free Spinach and Chickpea Alfredo

  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Cup Grated Parmassen Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • A couple handfuls of Spinach
  • 1 Cup Chickpeas
  • 8 Ounces Gluten Free Pasta
  1. Boil water for pasta and make according to directions
  2. In a small saucepan heat the butter and heavy cream, until the butter is melted.
  3. Grate the cheese and add it to the butter/cream mixture. Stir until melted and add in some salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Heat the chickpeas in the microwave, about one minute.
  5. Drain noodles and add back to pot. Add in a couple of handfuls of spinach, chickpeas and sauce. Stir until the spinach is slightly wilted. Enjoy.
