This is a very tasty way to make your children eating legumes.
Personally preferring this dish quite creamy I leave it rest at least 5 minutes at the end.
If you instead prefer it more watery add more water while cooking the pasta or eat it as soon you turn off the heat.

Every 2 People

  • 100g of green or brown lentils
  • 80g of smooth tomatoes
    passata
  • 1 clove of garlic (peeled)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • 100g of Linguine pasta (broken
    in little pieces)

Check the lentils well to remove stones or other impurities, soak them for at least 2 or 3 hours then drain them.
In a deep pan start boiling the lentils with the clove of garlic, at the half of the cooking time add the tomato, 2 table spoons of olive oil and salt to your taste. Remember to stir occasionally.
When the lentils are ready remove the garlic.
Add the pasta stirring often and pour more boiling water if necessary.
Once the pasta is ready turn off the heat and let it rest for few minutes, then serve.
