  • Peel and dice the onion, placing it into a large casserole dish along with the tinned lentils (unstrained) and wholewheat fusilli.
  • Place all other ingredients in a medium saucepan, mix bringing to a boil.
  • Once the sauce reaches a boil, pour it over the ingredients in the casserole dish evenly distributing the sauce with the ingredients.
  • Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 60 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.


* May substitute white or gluten-free pasta but I have not tested rice or legume based pasta so the same results cannot be guaranteed.
** Plumed tomatoes or passata are also suitable, but NOT fresh.
