Mediterranean Remix Pasta

Chickpea pasta is a great alternative to traditional, high-carb pastas. The pasta is not the star of this dish, however; the delicous vegetables are center stage in this recipe. The tangy artichoke hearts pair well with the roasted flavor of the red peppers. Top with feta cheese for a creamy addition.
