A quick weeknight meal loaded with flavor and nutrition!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Fettuccini Pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • 1 cup Canned Chickpeas, Drained And Rinsed
  • 2 ears Corn, Husks And Silks Removed, Kernels Removed

  • 8 whole Cherry Tomatoes
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water for approximately 12 minutes or as per package directions.

While it’s cooking, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil into a large cast iron pan. Add the chickpeas and corn and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes.

Cut the zucchini into thin slices. Remove the chickpeas and corn from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and add the garlic and tomatoes.
