In a large sauce pan, sauté the onions and carrots for a few minutes in extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil. Add half of the garlic and sauté for one minute.
Add the ground beef and cook until almost brown.
Add the sweet bell pepper, tomatoes and tomato paste. You can drain the whole tomatoes if you like, but you can just cook down the sauce if want it to be thicker. If you're using whole tomatoes, break them up a bit with the spoon.
Add the seasonings - italian herbs, sea salt and pepper.
Lastly, add the brocolli florets about 4-5 minutes before serving to prevent overcooking. Add the rest of the fresh garlic.
In a large pot on the stove, boil water and add a whole package of Chickapea Pasta.
Combine pasta with desired amount of sauce.
Makes 4-6 servings.
