I love this dish, the sauce is light but with a good flavour, you could also use this recipe to make a speedy lasagne! I like to top mine with chopped chilies for some heat and some red onion or other salad ingredients but you could add chillies into the main cooking stage if you prefer. I added some beans into this recipe but they are not essential, I was just using up some fridge ingredients.
Carrots chopped into small cubes
Celery chopped into small pieces
Green Pepper chopped into small cubes
Tomato Puree x 4 tbsp
Oregano (dried or fresh or parsley)
Chill powder (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Cook the wholewheat spaghetti in boiling salted water for around 15 minutes until cooked through. Meanwhile cook up the chopped garlic, onions and chillies (optional) for a few minutes then add in the rest of the chopped vegetables and a little vegetable stock to simmer away until cooked. Add in the lentils, tomato puree and tinned tomatoes and simmer away for a few minutes then add in the herbs (oregano). Add in a little chilli powder to spice it up if you wish at the end. Add in extra stock to create enough sauce and simmer to thicken. Serve with the cooked pasta.
