In March 2012,  over 40 bloggers got together and created a wonderful cookbook, Blogging for Fishes, to help raise money for two girls, Natalie and Alice Fish, who were diagnosed with Leaky SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency). There are so many fantastic recipes in this book and as I was thumbing through it last week looking for something quick and easy to make for dinner one night, I came across this recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen called Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Sauteed Chick Peas and Spinach.

PERFECT! I happened to have everything in the house, but opted to use the Barilla Plus Whole Grain pasta instead (I have the “I don’t eat brown pasta” thing going on at my house so I try to make it a little healthier any way I can) and used some Asiago cheese instead of the Parmesan.

    Sounds delicious. I’m a Barilla plus fan too–I like their Angel Hair best, though we had farfalle with dinner just tonight.

    Thanks!
