I know. I have said it countless times before. I love Pasta. I could die after eating any pasta with any sauce. Like Seriously, For Reals.
This is a very delicious pasta recipe that is Vegan! Yay! I wanted more protein and fiber in some of my vegan dishes and decided to sneak in some lentils in easy recipes like pasta & sauce. It isn’t really sneaking in lentils if they are the star of the show but you know what I mean!
Delicious Rating: Yummy Yummy time right here! Delicious Easy recipe to cook and delicious to eat. The lentils add such a depth of flavor in the sauce that I haven’t had in even the meatiest tomato sauce. For me pasta is super addicting to eat so if you are truly a pasta lover you will find this dish gone before you know it! Add in parsley while the sauce is simmering for an extra spice and flavor.
Fettuccine and Lentil Sauce
- 1 cup lentils rinsed
- 2 carrots julienned
- 5 celery stalks chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 8 oz can tomato paste
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 1 package fettuccine noodles
- Parsley for garnish
- Boil a large pot of salted water.
- Add in lentils, carrots, and celery.
There is no need to pre-soak the lentils. The recipe has them cooking for awhile so don’t worry about soaking them.
- Cook over low heat for 45 minutes.
- Reserving 2 cups of cooking liquid, drain lentil mixture.
- Toss lentil mixture with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
- In blender, puree half of the lentil mixture.
I only puree half the mixture to give it some ‘chunkiness’ when served but if you want an all smooth sauce, blend it all.
- In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute.
- Add in tomato paste and stir for 2 minutes.
- Add in reserved cooking liquid and lentil puree and combine well.
- Stir in remaining lentil mixture and season with salt & pepper to taste.
Because of the lentils the sauce is much more hearty than a regular tomato sauce. It has such a depth of flavor! I love this recipe!
- Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.
- Cook fettuccine noodles and drain.
- Top noodles with sauce on individual serving dishes and garnish with parsley.
- Serve immediately.
