Quick Chickpea Pasta Dinner

I have a recipe! for this -
I'm far to busy at the moment to make long winded and fancy dinners. Quick and Easy rules the day in our house all the way! As a bonus this one uses 1 dish in the oven and 1 on the stovetop. I'm not counting the salad bowl!

Tastes great hot or cold. While the dish is baking, cook the pasta and make a salad, and, …. Dinner!

Smoky Chickpea Tofu Pasta
Serves 2

1 T Oil
½ Packet Smoked Tofu – cut into ½” dice
½ C Chickpeas (if tinned – drained and rinsed)
½ T Maple Syrup
1 T Soy Sauce
½ t Liquid Smoke
¼ t Ancho Chili Powder
¼ t Paprika
¼ t Cumin
Pinch Chili Flakes (or more if you like)

Pasta for 2 cooked to package directions
2 T Water

Preheat oven to 400F.
Combine all ingredients in an 11 X 7 baking dish. Toss well to coat.
Bake for 25 minutes, stirring after 15.
Add the cooked pasta and water. Toss to combine and cook a further 5 minutes.
