What to know before you start:
Add extra broth if cooking without a lid.
Partially covering the pot while it cooks holds in the liquid. If using an open pot or pan, add ¼ cup extra broth.
If for any reason your pasta is too dry when the liquid absorbs, add an extra splash of broth.
Make it your own.
Add extra spices or keep it simple -- either way, this dish is versatile and delicious!
Add fresh tomato to revive leftovers.
The juice and flavor from a little fresh tomato rehydrates any leftovers for an awesome meal on day 2!
I like this recipe with a gluten-free pasta that's a rice/lentil blend.
I used Bionaturae Organic Gluten-Free Rice & Lentil Pasta (also soy-free). I think it tastes the most like traditional pasta. The red lentil pastas have a stronger bean flavor.
It's totally foolproof.
