Our Pasta e Ceci is simple to prepare, yet packed full of satisfying flavor. A finely minced soffritto of onions, garlic, carrot, celery, and pancetta gives the dish a meaty backbone and anchovies, tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese add even more depth. To ensure a silky, stick-to-your-ribs texture, we cook the pasta in the same pot with the chickpeas to capture the starches released during cooking. Our Bibb and Frisée Salad uses a combination of frilly, crunchy frisée and soft, buttery bibb lettuce. Thinly slicing the celery and apple allows them to combine cohesively with the salad greens. Walnuts add crunch and nuttiness. We use red wine vinegar as a base for the dressing to accent the apple's sweetness and the celery's subtle earthiness.
