Lentil Pasta Dinner for Five in 10-minutes and Less Than $15
This is an easy lentil pasta dish that can be made in about 10 minutes and feeds five people for less than $15.
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. I used Trader Joe’s whole wheat spiral pasta. JD Roth used spaghetti noodles in the show.
  2. Heat non-stick pan and add veggie broth and chopped onion. Sauté and keep adding broth a few tablespoons at a time until the onion is soft and almost cooked all the way.
  3. Add fire roasted tomatoes (or chopped tomatoes) and cooked lentils. I really prefer the fire roasted because they add so much flavor. Mix until combined well. I cooked my own lentils (1 cup dry makes 2+ cups cooked) in veggie broth.
  4. Now, toss in the shredded basil and stir until wilted.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. I also added garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt, oregano, and aminos.
  6. Serve lentil bolognese over pasta and enjoy.
