Preparation

  1. Heat a larger pot, once heated add the garlic-infused olive oil, the leek and stir for 5min, continue by adding the carrots, tomatoes and bell pepper, season with salt, black pepper, cinnamon, cumin paprika. Fry for another 5min.
  2. In the same pan add the lentils and water, cover the pan and let it simmer for 15min to 20min(until the lentils get tender)
  3. While the sauce is cooking, in a separate pan boil the pasta.
  4. When the sauce is all done and the preferred thickness is achieved, either with a masher or hand blender, mash the sauce. Be careful to not overdo it, it should still have the texture of the vegetables and lentils. (I would say just a few seconds with the blender just to combine the ingredients together, you don't want your final result to be a soup!)
  5. Once the sauce is ready, serve it over the pasta.
  6. Top it with crushed walnuts, fresh parsley or any other topping of choice.
  7. Best when fresh( or store the sauce separately from the pasta(up to 2 days)) the gluten-free pasta doesn't keep well.
