    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    Posted for ZWT 6. Koshari is very similar to chili. It is made of lentils, rice and tomato sauce and cab be spicy. Koshari is a fast food meal in the Middle East, and is offered by street vendors in cities like Cairo. There are many variations, but this recipe should give you a good idea of what it is all about!

      I really enjoyed this. I didn't have orzo or elbows, so I used the bows instead. It was still great. Do cook the lentils the entire time mentioned.
