Lentil Bolognede with Rigatoni Recipe

Written on Saturday, August 13, 2016 | 10:07:00 AM

Serves : - 6

Ingredients : 
- 1 cup (200 g) dried brown lentils, rinsed
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 2 celery ribs, chopped
- 2 medium-sized carrots, chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (28-oz [795-g]) can crushed tomatoes
- 3 tbsp (55 g) tomato paste
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) red wine vinegar
- 1 cup (240 ml) water
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- ¼ cup (25 g) Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, plus more for garnish
- ⅓ cup (10 g) fresh parsley leaves, chopped
- 12 oz (340 g) rigatoni pasta (roughly 4½ cups dried pasta)

Preparation Method :
1) Place the lentils in a medium stock pan and add water until lentils are covered by at least 2 inches (5 cm). Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until just tender, about 30–35 minutes. Once tender, drain and set aside.

2) Heat 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots and a pinch each of salt and pepper, and cook for 10 minutes or until the onion is translucent and vegetables are soft. Stir in the garlic.

3) Add the cooked and drained lentils, tomatoes, tomato paste, vinegar, water and dried herbs to the pot, along with the crushed red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt. Stir the mixture well and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and reduced slightly. This is definitely a Sunday-afternoon sauce, so feel free to let it simmer for longer, just make sure to stir occasionally. Just before serving, stir in the Parmesan cheese and parsley .

4) While the sauce is cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the rigatoni and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta but do not rinse.

5) Divide the pasta among 4–6 bowls and top with Bolognese sauce. Top with extra Parmesan cheese, if desired.

VEGAN VERSION: Replace Parmesan cheese with Vegan Parmesan Cheese, same amount.
