One Pot Red Lentil Pasta

One Pot Red Lentil Pasta

This is my go to recipe on a busy day, it only takes 5-10mins to make and is a nutritionally balanced meal.

Lentil pasta is an excellent alternative as it’s high in fiber and protein. Lentils are aslo loaded with folate, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Lentil pasta is rich in fiber. Fiber intake helps reduce the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
