This is the perfect spaghetti recipe if you're looking for something wholesome and filling. The lentils replace the ground beef so well that my dad, who has always been a meat eater, exclaimed "you can't have that, there's meat in there!" when he saw me eating the spaghetti! I'll take that as a definite win ;)
This is the perfect meal if you're short on time, 20-30minutes and it's ready to go.
Cook time: 25min
1 package spaghetti
1/2 cup dried red lentils
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 jar organic tomato sauce
1/2 jar water
1tsp Italian seasoning
salt and pepper
1 handful spinach, chopped
Add spaghetti to boiling water and cook until al dente.
While pasta is cooking, sauté onion, garlic, carrots, and bell pepper until fragrant and a little soft.
Add lentils, sauce, water, and seasoning. Bring to a simmer, stirring every so often, until the lentils are cooked. Add spinach until wilted.
Serve over pasta or quinoa.
This recipe can be frozen before or after cooking!
I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we do. It's delicious with some vegan parm sprinkled on top!
