This One Pot Lentil Pasta is the ultimate easy weeknight comfort food! With only 9 ingredients, 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes of cooking, it will quickly become a weekday staple.
Extra protein from the lentil pasta makes for a filling meal and tomato and basil blend together nicely with olive oil and just a few spices, for simple perfection.
*If cooking without a lid or the pasta is too dry, add up to 1/4 cup extra vegetable broth.
Make it your own. Add extra spices or keep it simple -- either way, this dish is versatile and delicious!
Add a little 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.
