Looking for a simple and healthy dinner option? This pasta recipe is nutritious, simple and delicious! It’s low-fat, filling and packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. Lentils are a great source of protein and iron (with almost no fat) and they’re full of fibre!
Ingredients: 1 tsp of EVOO, 1 medium-sized cooking onion (chopped), 3 cloves of garlic (minced), 1 can of Whole Plum Tomatoes (no salt added), 1 cup of red lentils (rinsed and drained), 2 Tbsp of dried oregano, 1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper (dried), 2 tbsp raw coconut sugar, S&P to taste, 1 package of gluten-free, low sodium gnocchi (egg and dairy free) – I used San Remo.
Directions: Heat a large sauce pan and add olive oil, onion and garlic. Sauté until onions are translucent. Next, add the tomatoes, lentils and all the spices. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add fresh gnocchi to the boiling water for about 2 minutes or until they float to the top of the pot! Drain. Toss the gnocchi in the sauce.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!!
