Rinse pan if necessary. Heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
Add beans (with juice) and chicken broth; season with salt, pepper and chili flakes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked. Add frozen peas to pasta water 2 minutes before pasta is done.
