 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           Dry chick peas, soaked
    1       lb           Elbow macaroni
    2       ea           Garlic cloves, crushed
    2       tb           Olive oil
    1       tb           Basil
    1       tb           Parsley
                         Olive oil for drizzling
 
   Drain & wash chick peas.  Cook for 50 to 60 minutes,
   or until tender.
   
   Meanwhile, cook the macaroni in a large pan of boiling
   water, lightly salted for 10 minutes, or until just
   resistant to the bite.  Drain.
   
   Saute garlic in a large skillet in olive oil for a few
   minutes.  Add cooked, drained chick peas & macaroni.
   Mix in the basil & parsley.  Cook over a very low
   heat, stirring occasionally, til the flavours are
   absorbed & the mixture is heated through.  Season with
   salt & pepper & serve hot with a crisp green salad.
