Lentil and Tomato Bolognese – A Simple and Satisfying Vegetarian Recipe

A variation on the traditional meat-based bolognese, this vegetarian recipe from Feel Good Food¬†uses lentils and it’s delicious. The recipe suggests super healthy pasta but you could use any type of pasta. It’s quick, easy, healthy and filling. Make a big batch – the leftovers are great for freezing, serving over rice or mopping up with crusty bread. Kids love it too. The following serves 4 and you will need:

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 400g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 400g can crushed tomatoes
  • 400g can lentils, rinsed, drained
  • 1/2 cup (130g) sundried tomato pesto
  • 400g wholemeal or spelt long pasta
  • Fresh basil leaves and shaved parmesan to serve
