L's Lentil Pasta

Baked Pasta (Vegetarian) 

From L.

1. Cook whatever kind of noodles you like to just "al dente." Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.  

2. Prepare 8 ounces (more or less) of lentils according to the package instructions. Drain. Set aside.  

3. Prepare a tomato sauce. I usually saute fresh minced garlic and onion in some olive oil, add diced canned tomatoes, basil, oregano, and/or whatever you like in your sauce and let it simmer a while. 

 4. Treat a baking dish with non-stick spray. Layer noodles, lentils, tomato sauce, grated mozzarella, and parmesan cheese until you run out of ingredients or room in your baking dish. A cheese layer should end up on top. 

 5. Bake at 375 (or so) until the cheese is melted and bubbly and forming brown spots.
