  3. Stir in the red wine and garlic. Simmer on medium low for a few minutes until the wine has been mostly absorbed.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes, stirring to combine with the beef. Add the oregano and dried basil. (if using fresh basil, save that until you are almost done cooking the sauce). Stir in greens at this time, too, if you are using them.
  5. Start cooking the pasta according to package instructions as the tomatoes and beef simmer.
  6. After the tomatoes have cooked for about 10 minutes, stir in the chickpeas. Break up a few against the side of the skillet with a heavy spoon, to thicken the sauce. Add the fresh basil at this time if using.
  7. Drain the pasta when cooked to your liking. Gradually stir the pasta into the skillet, so that the pasta and sauce are well combined.
  8. Plate the pasta, and top with grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
