DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Add onions, mushrooms, zucchini and garlic.
  • Cook while stirring over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add lentils[I like the orange ones] and 3 cups water to the vegetables.
  • Turn up the heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, and 1/2 cup water.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • If necessary, add more water to keep the sauce from sticking.
  • Be careful not to dilute; the sauce should be quite thick.
