Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a blender add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 cup chickpeas, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder, and blend until smooth. If you are using diced tomatoes you can blend everything but the tomatoes.
  2. Transfer creamy tomato sauce to a medium saucepan, and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add oregano, basil, sweetener, salt, and pepper to taste. If you want a spicier sauce, you can add red pepper flakes now.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large stockpot of generously-salted water according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid and drain.
  5. Continue cooking the sauce until it reaches a simmer.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for up to 30 minutes until it has partially reduced.
  7. Stir in the artichoke hearts, capers and ½ cup whole chickpeas.
  8. Taste, and season with salt & pepper, if needed.
  9. When your sauce is ready, combine the drained pasta with a few scoops of the sauce and gently toss, until it is evenly coated.
  10. Serve immediately, garnished with your desired toppings.

    Kind of made this tonight. I didn’t add in the artichoke, capers, or extra whole chickpeas. I just did the first few steps with the blending of the chickpeas and the tomatoes, paste, and seasonings. I’ve made tomato sauce with lentils before, but I like this better.

    The chickpeas and tomatoes blended together gave it a thick texture that my husband and I both loved! I don’t want to say it was meaty, because I’ve never liked a meaty texture (haven’t ate meat or meat substitutes since I was very young), but maybe it is? My Italian husband said the texture reminded him of an old-school sauce he used to have in Italy growing up but didn’t embellish because he knows I wouldn’t like to hear that it tastes meaty. Lol. Regardless, it’s going to be a regular around here.
