    300g short cut pasta - used whole wheat rotini
    200g brown or green lentils

    Soffrito vegetables
    1 large carrot, finely diced
    1/2 medium red pepper, finely diced

Directions

1. Using a large pan, heat the olive oil and fry the 'soffrito' vegetables and chopped garlic till soft but not browned.
2. Add the chopped tomato and fry for a further minute or so.
3. Add the chopped rosemary and the lentils. Finally, add the water then cover and cook for 20-25mins, till lentils are soft. Season with salt and pepper.(Keep an eye on them and check occasionally to make sure the lentils don't dry out too much, adding a little more water if necessary).
4. In the meantime cook your pasta and drain.
5. Just before serving mix the hot lentils into the pasta and serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil if desired.
