start with fresh greens / recipe calls for spinach
I used a variety from my garden:  beet tops, chard and arugula


1 cup whole wheat pasta, cook drain, mix with a bit of oil and set aside.
1 pkg. Italian VEGAN sausage, sliced
1 lg. onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, cut off stems and chopped
1/2 to 3/4 cup white wine
1 can GOYA (I have found most other brands to be of lesser quality) chickpeas
fresh spinach, cut out stems and chop 
salt and pepper, to taste

onions and VEGAN sausage browning together


Saute the onions in some oil till they start to soften.  Add the sliced sausage and garlic.  Cook together until browning starts and both start sticking to the pan. 

Pour in white wine to deglaze the pan.  Stir to loosen the cooked bits.  Add the rosemary, salt and pepper.

Add the beans and fresh greens. Add a bit more oil, wine OR veggie stock,  if you need more liquid Stir, cover and cook about 10 - 15 minutes; greens will wilt.  Finally add the pasta, stir and cook until heated through.

the finished product  :)

very hearty, healthy and delicious
