Pasta e Lenticchie (Pasta with Lentils)

Spread the love

Pasta with any type of bean is a weekly staple in Italian homes. It is nutritious, filling and an economical way to feed a large family. This is one of my favorite dishes. My mother would also add the lentils to rice sometimes, which is also very good! This type of bean does not need to be soaked, so it is an easy and quick weeknight meal. It is also a one pot meal, which is great on a busy weeknight.
