I used to love pasta, but gave it up because I suspected a wheat allergy. I already use a lot of flaxseed and always have some onhand, always using it ground. I'll have to pick up some chickpea flour at the healthfood store and give your pasta a try. The rest of the recipe sounds easy and delicious, too. Will have to try it, as well.
