A quick, easy and healthy meatfree family recipe, all cooked in one pot and ready in just 15 minutes.
600ml vegetable stock
1 can (400g) chopped tomatoes
200g cherry tomatoes
1 red pepper, chopped
10 fresh basil leaves
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
125g cooked green lentils (I used canned)
15-20 pitted black olives
Place all of the ingredients except for the lentils and olives into a large pan. Stir everything together, bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until the spaghetti has cooked.
If at any point the sauce seems to be drying out, add a little extra veg stock.
Add the lentils and olives, stir well and cook for another 2 minutes.
