One of my new discoveries at the Allergy Show was a pasta with just one ingredient and that ingredient is red lentils! Odd you say; I thought that too but this stuff is good!
It is no secret that I am not the world’s most adventurous cook and if the words ‘food processor’ (gathering dust under the stairs) is used in a recipe or it means using every pot in the kitchen I simply can’t be bothered. One pot cooking I love! I do try and eat healthy 80% of the time and pasta is such an easy, simple and quick staple to keep in the cupboard.

It is stocked in my local Sainsbury’s so easy to get my mitts on. With the discovery of Tolerant pasta it is brilliant to know that I now have a pasta choice whilst still being healthy.

This pasta would be perfect for a post-gym workout. This is what I rustled up a few days ago:
