MY PASTA & LENTILS (KIDS LOVE IT)

Hello everyone.

Today I am sharing with you my personal and very simple recipe for making delicious pasta and lentils.


My children love it and can’t wait for me to make it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SERVINGS:4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 of lentils (250 grams)
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 cups of pasta
  • salt to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil to taste

 

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

First we slice the cherry tomatoes in half, celery and carrots.

In a pot we put a clove of garlic along with the cherry tomatoes, celery and carrots.

We add the lentils and cover with water.

We add a tablespoon of salt and let it cook initially on a high flame.

As soon as the water starts to boil, turn the heat to low and let it cook for about an hour.

Remove the garlic clove.

I usually taste the lentils to check if they are cooked.

When the lentils seem cooked, you can turn off the flame and add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta.

When the pasta is cooked, you have two options.

Add the pasta to the lentils or serve the pasta in the dish by adding the lentils to it.

Variation: If you want to make the dish more succulent, you can sauté a clove of garlic and once removed, add the oil to the lentils.

As for pasta shapes, I suggest you use either small shapes or you can try spaghetti or broken linguine.
