Easily prepared, and really good! The lentils add their own flavour and texture, a slightly sweet nutty suggestion. Really liked this budget stretcher. I didnt stir the cheese into the sauce, as it tends to make the pots hard to clean, I chose to sprinkle the cheese onto the pasta, pour the sauce on top, and gently mix it. Some fresh basil finished the dish nicely. Thank you, Valgal, this good dish was made for Alphabet tag game.
