    It tastes great and makes the sauce more 'bulky'
    My kids like it mixed with the small pasta shells and some grated cheese stirred through it.
    You say 'lentil bolognaise sauce'

    Is that different to regular sauce?

    I have not done anything with lentils. Don't even know how to cook them. I guess you just boil them. Then just use it in the sauce instead of mince?

    Sounds good might try it for the kids. Oh I'll have some too.

    Nope. Nothing like mince I would imagine.

    Easiest way to use lentils is to buy the tinned stuff, rinse and throw in instead of mince.
    If you buy dried, get the red ones as they only need a rinse and not a soak like the others. They will still need more cooking than the tinned ones though.

    For my meatasauruses I halve the amount of mince used and make it up with a tin of lentils. They don't notice the difference unless I tell them I've done it.

    Back in my day, ABC played Alice Cooper on the kids cartoons and our cartoons could talk. Being a kid sucks now.

    I agree with using lentils to bulk up a meal,they work a treat and you cant even notice them!

    A great way to use up veges in fridge /freezer.is what I call "Corn and Bacon bake" can of corn kernels,one grated carrot and zuchinni,some frozen spinach and lentils,bacon,diced onion and 1/2 cup SR flour mix all together and add eggs until runny.I usually use around 6-8 eggs.Makes heaps and great to freeze for leftovers. I reckon the whole meal would be around $5 to make and its yummmmooo

    My slack tight *** meal is fried rice. But it's known in our house as mummy rice as its basically 2 cups rice, egg, whatever meat I have (chicken, bacon, pork or beef strips- you only need 250g or less), veg- fresh or frozen whatever i have at the time and a splash of soy and it's all done. Costs prob $5-7 including meat and it feeds our family of 7- the kids love it- I'm not the highest fan but it's filling and a quick and easy back up on those empty pantry nights.
    Other quickie I often do if the veg in the crisper are looking a bit old is dice it all up toss in the slow cooker with a can of tomatoes, some diced chicken or whatever meat I have, garlic, some herbs and leave it to simmer- uses up all the rubbery stuff I could otherwise throw out and the kids love it. You can also toss older apples in diced and it gives it a sweet/sour variety
