I planned on using garbanzo beans in this, and I really would have liked to but I didn't have any bottled.
So I subbed black eyed peas instead and I really like that. One cup of cooked lentils would also work. In place of the alphabet pasta you could use crushed ramen, Israeli couscous, or cooked rice.
I stirred a little sambal olek into the top for some more heat.
I also plan on sending this to Presto Pasta Nights, being hosted over at Food Hunters Guide to Cuisine.
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, cut into cubes
3 c. vegetable broth
1 Tbsp green curry paste

Heat the oil in a pan and saute onion for 1 minutes. Add the carrot and continue sauteing until the onion is tender. Add the broth, green paste, garam masala, frozen green beans and beans. When the carrots are tender and the pasta and cook 2 minutes until tender.
