  • Simmer: Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
  • Boil: When nearly ready to serve, turn slow cooker up to high and add pasta. Allow pasta to cook until al dente, about 7-10 minutes.

Notes

To make on the stovetop: Sauté your veggies and seasonings for about 10 minutes, add your broth and chickpeas and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes. Then, add the noodles. Allow to simmer another 7-10 minutes before adding your fresh parsley and lemon juice. Serve and enjoy! 
 
To use fresh onion and garlic: Add 3 cloves of minced garlic and 1 finely chopped yellow onion to crockpot in the "combine" step.
