Recipe adapted from Filippo Berio

PREP TIME                                     COOK TIME

10-12 minutes                                    20 minutes


30 minutes



1/2 cup pancetta, finely diced
1 lb casarecce pasta or radiatore pasta or similarly shaped pasta
1 can (14 1/2 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp grated Pecorino-Romano cheese
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup small tomatoes, chopped into four equal parts
8 oz kale, stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tsp fresh sage, chopped
2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tbsp Nuvos Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Nuvos' B.S.G or Garlic Olive Oil
Himalayan Salt as per taste


Take a pan and sauté pancetta until browned but not too crispy. Drain on a paper towel–lined plate. In a large pan heat olive oil set over medium heat. try Nuvos' B.S.G or Garlic Olive Oil for an added kick. Add onions, cook until softened. Stir in kale, thyme, sage, and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until kale is wilted. Add chickpeas, tomatoes and pancetta. Sprinkle salt as per taste. Now reduce heat to low.
Boil a large pot of salted water and cook pasta until al dente. Drain and stir into chickpeas-tomatoes-pancetta mixture in the pan. Toss over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes. Make sure the pasta has soaked up most of the sauce but is still very moist. While serving, sprinkle with Pecorino-Romano.


You can also go for sundried tomatoes (1 jar 200ml) instead.

Two brothers, Josh and Nate, fought hard to keep their 125-year-old and family owned olive orchard. After succeeding, they worked relentlessly to learn the business as well as being great stewards of Mother Earth by taking great care of their trees. This paid off, as the olives are giving back and each bottle the brothers produced has won an international award. The latest is a GOLD AWARD at the 2018 NYIOOC (largest olive oil competition in the world) for their Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both brothers are highly committed to bringing you the very best, all 100% natural olive oils from farm to your table - all made right here in the USA.
