Chick-Peas and Potatoes Soup For Three

As I pass too much time at home, I talk too much about my domestic world, I know! Probably in a little while everything will change.
So, here my daily lunch. Better than expected. You need a chickpeas box, some potatoes (2-4), all the spices you want to add, one garlic, one small onion, some tomato paste, oil and salt.
  • Put 1,5 or 2 liters of water into a pan, and some salt or a piece of bouillon cube.
  • After a little while, all the content of the chickpeas box, water included.
  • Start peeling off potatoes, then put them into the water too.
  • Let everything boil at least twenty minutes... it means you've got, first, to wait the water to boil! But if you wait more, it is even better.
  • Start cutting the onion and garlic in small pieces.
  • Put some oil in a skillet, wait a little and then put there garlic and onion pieces.
  • As they become yellow, put some tomato paste, and then turn everything with a wood spoon.
  • When you have the feeling that garlic and onion will burn in a little while, put all the content of the skillet in the pan (or viceversa, if your skillet is big enough.
  • Put some pasta (150g more or less) in this soup. I suggest broken linguine, or some little tubes (in Italian, ditaloni... but in Germany they are impossible to find!).
  • You can smash cheackpeas and potatoes with the wood spoon, so the soup will be more similar to a cream.
  • Doing this, soon you will have to add some water, to let the pasta cook!
  • Add some more tomato paste, if the soup has become too pale.
  • Pasta will need totally around twenty minutes to cook. Then, the dish is ready to serve!
  • This is not very nice to see... lately I often cook things that are someway horrible to see, but delicious!

    Ok, I tried, and it was HORRIBLE to see. I couldn't even try to taste. How can you do this to food? You're Italian?

    Pehaps, if you post on how to make a little cheesecake like I had in Milan last year I'll forgive you. Or maybe not.

    You are quite funny :-)

    Hi Ro... sorry, but I am not able to prepare cakes. By the way, I'd like to learn.
    Usually Italians use to cook things that are better to see, but... Yes, I am Italian. But I'm not a conventional cook. I follow the stream of the moment. Each moment. So I often cook weird things. They're edible, I can grant it. Often my roommate eats what I prepare, and he is still alive. He seems even happy! :)
    Do you want me to invite you at dinner? Are you brave enough?

Suppose he had laid on the card and asked for Miss Claiborne! What's the matter, Champe? inquired Ross, http://startso11.info/www.kfbkutno.pl.html in a fairly natural tone..
