I have recently discovered red lentil pasta. What a genius idea. Ok granted, it’s designed for people with gluten intolerance but it’s also a fantastic way to make pasta a bit more healthy, particularly for children. With a slightly peppery taste it’s a perfect warmer for the winter weather. Just substitute it into your normal pasta dishes or throw some into a soup or a casserole for a shortcut towards your five-a-day. I often mix half and half with regular pasta so the kids have something familiar and the taste doesn’t overpower the dish.
WARNING – it’s not as easy on your pocket as regular pasta, but worth the extra £££ in my opinion!
