Creamy Lentil Spaghetti

You'll need:
400g pasta
1 tin diced tomatoes
1 tin lentils
small handful of basil leaves
1/4 cup my creamy cauliflower mash
(To make creamy cauliflower mash, simply steam half a head of cauliflower & a handful of spinach (approx 30g I never really measure to be honest!) together until cooked ~approx ratio 3:1~ - then place in a blender with a 1/4 cup of cashews & a pinch of nutmeg - this is great as a salad dressing, a dip or mixed with meals for added flavour & a creamy texture!)

Cook the pasta per packet directions.
In a small saucepan place the lentils, the tomatoes, the creamy cauliflower mash & the basil leaves & bring to the boil.
Simmer for a few minutes stirring continuously to make sure it's warmed through.

Serve the lentil mix over the top of the pasta. Serve with cracked black pepper & another basil leaf.
(Serves 4)
(Nice way of sneaking a bunch of veggies into a kids meal when they won't even notice!)
