The  lentil sauce for pasta is very tasty and looks a lot like ragù / bolognese sauce, a vegan alternative to the classic ragù that we all know well. The preparation is more or less like that of meat sauce, replaced however with lentils which are a very important source of protein, iron and fiber. If you have never tried the lentil sauce we recommend you do it accompanied with the pasta, choose a short pasta.Watch the Video on Toscana Mia Cooking School Youtube Channel.
