Another Slow Cooker inspired recipe for y'all. Layers of flavour and loads of Red Lentils which means lots of fiber and protein!
This recipe started out in my mind completely different but as the cook time went on I realized I had make a mistake somewhere. Not one to be defeated, I allowed it to continue cooking and when the lentils were thoroughly cooked and tender I gave it a taste and was pleasantly surprised. SO SO SO much flavour here, I wasn't about to discard the recipe!
COUPLE TIPS. . .
* Any lentil will work in this recipe. I used Red simply because the dish had a red tone.
* Lentils are forgiving, if they overcook they're still quite edible! I've overcooked a few in my day :)
* This recipe makes quite a lot of stew and is great for leftovers the next day. It's also freezable!
I've been in the kitchen a lot these past few weeks and I've got a stockpile of recipes I've created and tested. I decided I might as well throw a third recipe in for y'all this week!
I love pasta bakes! Simply switching the kind of pasta you use gives you a brand new dish! Fresh ravioli is the pasta star in this dish along with a lush sauce of spinach, ricotta, and tomato. A delicious and crispy topping that cracks when you dig in to it is the perfect finishing touch.
I've not included a tomato sauce recipe here as I've shared thousands in the past. I always suggest making a little extra sauce and freezing for another meal and this is why! You could even use a jar of your favourite sauce if you don't have home made handy. Here's a few links to previous recipes I've shared that included a scratch made sauce in case you want a recipe.
This week I've got 2 new recipes to share with you all and I think you are going to love them!
Stay tuned this week!
I've made countless salads similar to this in the past but only recently discovered there was a name and preparation for it.
This salad is so fresh and flavourful and really simple to whip up. I enjoyed it best straight away but you can certainly prepare it in advance if you desire!
Head on over to the recipes tab!
