Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with olive oil. Meanwhile, place the onions and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Sauté the onions and garlic in the pan until soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. While the onion and garlic are cooking, put the bell pepper, zucchini and squash in the food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add to the pan with the onions and garlic. Allow to cook for another 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened.
  4. Add the lentils, crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. Using the tomato can, add about a half can of water. Stir together. Add the Italian seasoning and the next 3 through the crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil then lower the heat and allow to simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until lentils are tender. Add more water as needed to keep the desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve over whole wheat angel hair pasta with freshly grated parmesan if desired.
Recipe Notes

Chef’s Notes:

  • If you cannot find red lentils in your store, then use any color lentils in it’s place.
  • Don’t let the remaining tomato paste go to waste! Scoop out 1 tablespoon at a time and place on wax paper. Freeze in the freezer. Once frozen, put them in a resealable and then you will have it when you need it.
