This was really good! I used black beans because I'm not a fan of garbanzos in a pasta dish. I also eyeball measurement (yes, it hurts me sometimes!) but I only put in maybe a tsp of garlic because 4 seemed like a lot. Glad I did because it was still very garlicky!

This was great. I added some olives and a can of diced tomatoes, which once heated with the feta made a great sauce. It was even better the day after!
