Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta.
Meanwhile, cook the pancetta in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Add the olive oil, garlic and jalapeno to the skillet with the pancetta drippings and cook until the garlic softens, about 1 minute. Add the chickpeas and cook, lightly smashing them with the back of a spoon, until slightly golden, about 4 minutes. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Add the pasta, pancetta and parmesan to the skillet along with the reserved cooking water; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among bowls, drizzle with more olive oil and top with more parmesan.
