Roasted Vegetable & Lentil Bolognese
Is Meatless Monday a “thing” in your house? Are you trying to add more plant-based recipes to your weekly meal plan? Or are you just frugal and looking for easy ways to use up all the pantry staples you have stocked up on and aren’t entirely sure what to do with? Never fear! I have a recipe that will appeal to (hopefully) everyone in your house! Who doesn’t love a good bowl of pasta anyway? Unless of course you’re gluten-free, in which case, use your favourite pasta in place of classic spaghetti! This recipe was created when my 2nd daughter was starting solids and I was looking for a few new ways to bring kid-favourites to the table. I am generally not a huge proponent of hiding food from my kids, but adding lentils to this sauce instead of meat is almost undetectable by them and comes together really quickly for pennies a plate! Change the level of spice in your sauce, add other veggies for colour and texture. Sprinkle with your favourite cheese and it’s a hit every time!
