Preparation time: 2 minutes

Cooking time: 13 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 3 people

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 400 g Chopped Tomatoes
  • 3 cloves Garlic
    chopped
  • 1 tbsp Honey
    or maple syrup
  • 0.5 - Onion
    chopped
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 4 tbsp Soy Sauce
    or tamari
  • 1 medium SuperValu Carrot
    grated
  • 1 bunch SuperValu Fresh Basil
  • 1 handfull SuperValu Goodness Flaked Almonds
    to garnish
  • 400 g SuperValu Goodness Green Speckled Lentils
    drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Oil
  • 160 g SuperValu Signature Tastes Irish Mushroom Medley
    (or any type of mushroom) finely chopped
  • 500 g Wholewheat Spaghetti

Method

1. Cook the spaghetti as per the packet instructions and drain well.

2. Add the oil to a large pan set on a high heat and heat up for 1 minute. Add the onion, carrot, garlic and a pinch of salt (as this will help break down the carrot) and cook for 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the mushrooms and cook for 1½ minutes, then add the soy sauce and honey and cook for 3 minutes more. Add the lentils and tomatoes and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.

3. Roughly chop the basil, stalks included, and add three-quarters of it to the pan, leaving the rest for garnish. Taste and season the sauce with a pinch of salt and pepper if you think it needs it.

4. Plate up your dishes with the spaghetti on the bottom and the Bolognese sauce on top. Garnish with the remaining basil and some flaked almonds (they taste even better if you toast them in a hot dry pan for a few minutes).
