Penne Pesto Pasta with Harissa Chickpeas

There’s something so earthy and delicious about an herbaceous pesto. As I was looking in the fridge and cupboards yesterday to figure out what to make for dinner, I saw that I had all the ingredients for a pesto. However, I didn’t just want pesto and pasta. I wanted to amp it up a little so I cooked up some chickpeas in harissa sauce. I also had some radish sprouts hanging out in the fridge that I put on top as a garnish/topping. This meal tastes of springtime!

I think I definitely am influenced by the seasons when I cook. Spring inspires me to make certain things that have the essence of the season. Winter inspires a different type of cooking as does fall and summer. We had some beautiful warm and sunny days recently and I wanted to put that springtime good feeling into my food.
