Rainbow Pasta

Every once in a awhile I feel like I have a flash of brilliance and actually come up with a recipe of my own.  They are never the most creative things, but they are generally tasty.  This is one of those concoctions.

Rainbow Pasta Sauce

1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 zucchini, shredded
1/2 cup cooked red lentils
1 roasted red pepper, thinly sliced
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I prefer Newman’s Own Sockarooni)

Sweat the onions and garlic until softened.  Add carrots and zucchini and cook for ~3 min to soften.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes.  Serve over your favorite pasta (Spud prefers wagon wheels).

Like I said, simple and not very creative, but an easy way to get a ton of veggies along with the all-mighty lentil!
