- Rinse and dry chickpeas. Place in a small bowl with olive oil + salt and add to an air fryer at 400°F for 15-20 minutes or until crispy golden brown. *if you don’t own an air fryer, place them on a baking sheet at 400°F for 25-30 minutes shaking them occasionally*
- In a medium pot bring water to a bowl and cook pasta according to package directions. Strain and let cool. It might be helpful to add a drop of olive oil once the noodles come out so they don’t stick.
- Chop romaine and red peppers and add to a large bowl. Add cooled pasta + caesar dressing and mix until well combined. Top with crispy chickpeas. Enjoy!
