Bowtie pasta & chick peas

On this particular day, I had no idea what I was gonna make for breakfast so when I saw the can of chick peas I thought of making pasta with it. The pasta was ready fast and it tasted good and it wasn't heavy in flavor and it turned out to be the perfect breakfast for a weekday.

You will need:-
Bow ties - 2 cups (cooked al dante)
Chick peas - 1 small can (rinsed and drained)
Shallots - 1 chopped fine
Garlic - 1 clove finely chopped
Jalapenos - 2 chopped
Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
White cooking wine - 1/4 cup
Dry or fresh - oregano
Grape tomatoes - a few cut in two (optional)
Olive oil - 1 tbsp

Method:-

In a kadai pour the olive il and when hot add the chopped garlic, shallots, jalapenos and then the chick peas. Fry it for a while and then add the oregano and the white wine. Once it reduces add the tomatoes, pepper and salt and let it cook until the tomatoes are tender and the aroma arises. Now add the cooked pasta and saute for a while and serve hot.
Could making breakfast get any easier?
I am sending this recipe to the A.W.E.D. Italiano event by DK of CulinaryBazaar.
