The past day or so I've been making much lasagne - this is my new favourite thing to make in big batches. We made this last night, there's enough for 12 people! Mmm. Lots of lasagne goodness.
The bolognese is a walnut & lentil combo. Would you like the recipe? It's easy.
Walnut & Lentil Bolognese
1/3 cup split red lentils
2/3 cup brown lentils (I like the little tiny ones).
2 cups water
1 bay leaf
Bring to the boil then cook on low for around 45 mins, or until they're cooked and a bit mushy.
1 large brown onion
a couple of shallots (or a bit more onion)
as much garlic as you feel like
quite a bit of olive oil (say 1/4 cup?)
Fry all this oniony and leeky goodness on a low heat until it's starting to brown and go a bit sweet.
Add in around 2/3cup of walnuts that you've whizzed in a food processor until they're a breadcrumb size (you could use hazelnut meal instead).
Add in the lentils, and around 440g tin of tomatoes, and a few olives or a teensy bit of salt. And herbs, if you like.
Let it cook for a bit! This is the quantity for quite a large pot of sauce.
Also - more gift tags!
Basil! The large herd of snails in my garden enjoyed eating my first round of basil seedlings, I'm hoping I can find all the snails and rehome them before these ones are ready. And I know, I didn't actually create these, they created themselves... but I did plant them, that counts, right?
