Total Time 20 mins


  • 9 ozs Chickpea Pasta
  • 8 cups Water
  • 2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic sliced thin
  • 4 ozs Canned Mackerel skinless, boneless
  • ½ tsp Chili Flakes
  • ½ cup Green Olives
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup Parsley finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Pine Nuts


  • In a large pot over high heat, heat water to a boil.
  • In a large pan, over medium-low heat, add the oil. Once hot, add the garlic and cook for one to two minutes until fragrant, stirring often.
  • Once the pot of water is boiling, add the pasta (we used linguine). Continue cooking for 6-8 minutes according to the package directions, stirring often to prevent the pasta from sticking.
  • While stirring the pasta occasionally, add the mackerel and chili flakes to the pan. Stir until the mackerel is warmed through and well-coated.
  • Strain the pasta and rinse, set aside.
  • Add the olives to the pan to warm through, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the pasta to the pan. Mix well.
  • Divide onto plates and top with parsley and pine nuts. Serve and enjoy!
