Whole-Wheat Shells with chickpeas and arugula

8ounces uncooked whole-wheat shells

3tbls extra-virgin olive oil

1 3/4 cups cooked chickpeas (about 1 15oz can)

4 packed cups arugula, chopped

1/3 cup packed dried cranberries

1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, sliced

4oz crumbled Feta

Salt and Pepper to taste

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.  Add shells and cook about 8 minutes, or until tender but still al dente.  Drain and transfer to a medium-large bowl.   Immediately drizzle with olive oil and toss to distribute.

While pasta is still hot, add chickpeas, arugula, cranberries, and tomatoes and toss gently.  Cool to room temperature, then stir in Feta.  Toss and add salt (feta tends to be salty, so go easy) and black pepper, if desired.   Top with roasted walnuts, if using and serve.
