Whole Wheat Pasta and Lentils
This dish is very quick, easy, simple and filling. I try to keep Homemade Slow Cooker Lentil Soup on hand frozen in individual serving size containers. On a night when I just don’t want to put much effort into prepping and preparing a meal, I put up some water to boil and pull out a frozen container of lentil soup. Within the time it takes the pasta to cook, I have dinner.
Eat This With That
I like to serve this dish with a side of Broccoli rabe or even steamed broccoli. Also, a big side salad is a great addition. Italian Style Cauliflower is also a great dish that pairs well with this dish.
- 1 pound organic whole wheat pasta
- 2 cups of slow cooker lentil soup (see link above)
- Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and add in the lentil soup. Ladle out, into soup bowls, 1 1/2 cups of the mixture. Top with fresh basil and parmesan cheese. You can add hot pepper flakes if you like it spicy. I also add a drizzle of good quality EVOO for an added layer of flavor.
