  • 2 and 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt


  1. Begin by cooking the pasta in a shallow wide pot with the water and a pic of salt, over medium heat. Bring it to a boil, then start to push down until it’s submerged and stir the pasta using tongs as it cooks. 
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, prepare the other ingredients. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a colander. Zest both of the lemons fully and set aside.
  3. Once the water comes up to the boil, cook for just under the label instructions (10 minutes) for 8/9 minutes, until al dente. Continue to stir occasionally.
  4. Next, when there are 5 minutes left for the pasta, add the chickpeas and then mix them in. After this, with about 4 minutes to go, add in the broccolini, mix it in and then cover the pan with a lid to steam them.
  5. Finally, once the pasta has finished cooking, add the lemon zest, drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice (to taste) and rocket. Mix together so that the rocket wilts a little bit.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
