Protein-Packed Lentil Pasta with Superfood Marinara Sauce!
I love this lentil pasta. It literally only contains lentils so it provides a protein punch to a vegetarian meal.
Servings: 4 servings
- 8 oz of Tolerant Red or Green Lentil Penne
- 25 oz jar of Cucina Antica Tomato Basil Sauce
- 6 oz box of Baby Spinach chopped
- 2 Red Bell Peppers diced
- 1/4 of a Red Onion diced
- 1 zucchini diced
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- Italian seasoning - to taste
- Salt & crushed red pepper - to taste
- Parmesan cheese 2 tbsp per serving
Cook the pasta according to package directions.
In a medium sized pot, saute the peppers, onion, zucchini, spinach, garlic and spices (italian seasoning, salt, crushed red pepper) for about 5-10 minutes until soft.
Combine the cooked veggie mixture with 1 jar of Cucina Antica Tomato Basil Sauce in a blender. Blend until smooth. (Alternatively you can add the Cucina Antica sauce to the pot, and use an immersion blender to blend it together).
Combine the cooked pasta with the superfood sauce mixture. Top with parmesan cheese and serve.
