This was good. I'm allergic to wheat so I omitted the noodles in my first try. I'll try to use gluten-free macaroni next time. I didn't have lentils but I had lots of cooked mung beans, so I used those instead and with the lovely sauce, it was just as yummy.
This is good but I can not give it 5 stars as this no way makes only 6 servings, more like 12!! I used a good extra virgin olive oil, cooking onion, sea salt to taste, freshly ground black pepper, brown lentils, as much water as needed, white Basmati rice, a good can plum tomatoes I chopped myself. I found the garlic quite strong in the sauce, would cut that down another time, like the poster I used regular chili powder in place of pure chile powder as we don't like spicy anyway, plus the rest of the ingredients.
