Chickpea pasta w/Meat Sauce (E) ~ THM ~ GF/DF/Almond Free

I love pasta. I used to make my own pasta until I had to go Gluten Free several years back. There are some good tasting GF pastas on the market. However pasta's like the brown rice pastas really should be used only occasionally in side serving size amounts. I do love Zoodles and Spaghetti Squash. However they don't always fit that need want for PASTA.

I found this recipe through my friend Cathryn a few months back. I finally tried it. The Perfect Easy Grain Free Pasta by Kelly at Foodie Fiasco. It is just 2 ingredients, and very simple to make. I don't know why I put it off so long. A little chickpea flour and an egg and you have some pasta.

The meat sauce

Brown 1 lb of ground beef or lean ground turkey. Drain and then rinse the cooked ground meat with 200 degree water. This gets rid of the extra fat. Put the meat back into the pan. Add in
1 TBS Italian Seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed fennel seed
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic grated or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Work the spices into the meat. Add
2 28oz cans of tomato sauce
1 28 oz can pureed tomatoes
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
Stir in and simmer for 20 min.
Taste test and add more Italian seasoning, salt and pepper if needed.
