    DbKnadler's Note:

    I took this recipe from a cook book I have that is called "Brain Foods For Kids: Over 100 Recipes To Boost Your Child's Intelligence." I got it as a send-in freebie from Kashi. I made a few tweaks to adjust to what I had on hand and added star pasta to try to bribe my picky daughter to try it. She loved it and asked for seconds! Veggie broth could be substituted for the chicken stock to make this vegan. Alphabet pasta would be something fun to try for the kids as well. The lentils are packed with protein so the 4 large servings are a meal alone. You could add grilled cheese to this and serve twice as many.

      my kids demolished this!! i served it with grated cheese on the top and, with wholemeal bread and butter, it made a healthy, economical tea. i will definitely make this again. i cooked the lentils with the veg and they were perfect. i also found that the small pasts shapes only took 4 minutes to cook. next time i am going to add a chopped red pepper. thanks for a fab recipe x
