In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, garlic and onion, stirring occasionally, until no liquid remains and mushrooms are browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

Stir in chickpeas, tomatoes, salt, pepper and oregano; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook ditali until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain and return to pot. Add sauce and chopped parsley; toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese; garnish with parsley sprigs.
