1 (1-pound) bag red lentils
1 (26.5-ounce) can Sloppy Joe sauce
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
other spices, to taste (optional)
1 (1-pound) package macaroni or other pasta, prepared according to package directions
nutritional yeast, to taste (optional)
1. Cook lentils for 25 minutes. If you use another type of lentil, adjust the cooking time accordingly. Drain and return to the pot.
2. Stir in the Sloppy Joe sauce, salt, pepper, and any other spice you'd like to add; cook on medium heat until thick.
3. Stir in pasta. That's it. You could add nutritional yeast for a little cheesy flavor as well. Enjoy!
