Roushta - lentils and pasta

From my latest addition of books a Lebanese feast, it was given to me for my birthday by my dearest friend that happens to know me very well 💙


250g brown lentils
1.5 l water
2 medium onions, chopped 
4 cloves crushed garlic
olive oil
200g pasta
extra virgin olive oil
chili flakes ( optional )

Soak the lentils in cold water for at least two hours.
In a big pot, pour in 4 Tbsp olive oil, add the onions and cook until soft.
Add the lentils and 1.5 boiling water.
Cook the lentils until soft, about 20 - 30 minutes.
Add your favorite pasta shape, I used pappardelle.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add the crushed garlic as well as the parsley. 
Before serving add some more parsley and extra virgin olive oil....
