”PACKED WITH LOTS OF PROTEINS”
Last year, I tried to make lots of my old-fashioned meals vegan. When I found out how to make the classic pasta bolognese vegan, I made the recipe at least once a week. Because I cook a lot, I don’t feel fancy meals everyday. Pasta is the perfect solution for that!
Sometimes, pasta recipes aren’t that high in fiber, so I always try to use lots of veggies and spices. Because I used lentils instead of ground beef, this recipe is way lower in saturated fats. I added more olive oil at the end, because the ‘good’ fats are very important for your body, so I increased the unsaturated fats in here.
Allright, let’s cook! Grab your hands on the recipe down below and enjoy this easy and nutritious lentil pasta bolognese!

You can replace the lentils for vegan ground beef! I absolutely love to use lentils but when you’re not a fan, replace them for meat substitutes.
Store the pasta in an airtight container for 2 more days in the fridge or 1-2 months in the freezer!
