Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz package lentil pasta or any pasta of choice
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced or crushed
  • 2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes with their juices
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli
  • 2 cups frozen peas

Instructions

  • Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add the lentil pasta and cook until al dente, about 6 to 8 minutes or according to package instructions. A few minutes into the pasta cooking, add the frozen broccoli and peas to the pot to soften and cook.
  • While the pasta and veggies are cooking, prepare the sauce. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil, garlic, and oregano and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the diced tomatoes with their juices and let everything simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. 
  • You can leave the pasta sauce as "chunky" or transfer it to a blender to blend into a smooth sauce. 
  • Drain the pasta and veggies in a colander and transfer to a large serving bowl. Add the sauce and mix until everything is coated.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

To make fewer servings, prepare less pasta. If you do not have frozen broccoli or peas on hand, you can use any other frozen veggies.
