Directions

1. Start water boiling in a large pot, and cook the lasagna noodles* (don’t over-cook).

2. Peel and dice onions. Peel and mince garlic. Set both aside.

3. Heat oil in a frying pan.

4. Toss in onions and sauté for a couple of minutes.

5. Add tomato paste, lentils, garlic and spices. Cooking at a low heat for 10 minutes until flavors meld.

6. Preheat oven to medium heat.

7. In a large baking pan, put a small amount of the tomato mixture on the bottom so that the noodles will not stick. Then put a layer of lasagna, layer of tomato mixture, and layer of cheese. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

8. Bake in a medium temperature oven for 30 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted.

 

Notes: A great vegetarian meal to make when your friends are coming over and you need several portions to feed them. Use what ever spices you have, or a blend of basil, oregano, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme etc.

 

Variations: Adding several other vegetables is a great way to make this a more exciting meal. You can also use an Italian style tomato sauce instead of the tomato paste and herb mixture.

 

Substitutions: Lentils/Eggplant, zucchini or mushrooms.
