One Pot Creamy Red Lentil Pasta


WOW! You guys seriously have to try this recipe… It’s:

  • Quick
  • Easy
  • Creamy
  • Delicious
  • Dairy-free

I made a box of lentil and quinoa super-grain pasta and it lasted me 4 lunches! It would be great for dinner too. What I love most about this recipe is that it’s so creamy, without any dairy! Even my husband noticed how creamy the pasta was.

The first time I made this, I used more broth than the second time. Both times were delicious, so if you want a more soupy dish add a splash more of broth. I’ve also tried this with different types of red lentil pasta noodles, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
