Spaghetti With Lentil Bolognaise

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

A versatile vegetarian bolognaise and a great way to get some nutritious lentils into your diet! Adapted from a recipe I found online. I love the vegetables that were in the original recipe but you could vary them depending on what's in season, what's reasonably priced and, of course, to meet your taste preferences. I just had to add a leek as I love the subtle blend of flavours from onion, garlic and leek cooked together. And when I made this I used probably double the 15 mushrooms included in the original recipe! :) Vary the herbs to meet the whim of the moment!

This turned out great! I accidently burnt my lentils, so ended up using a can of lentil soup, but this turned out so good! I will make again! I used whole wheat pasta. Made for PRMR.
