We had an old standby tonight that I hadn't made in a long time. "Pasta with Lentils and Artichoke Hearts" from The Moosewood Restaurant Lowfat Cookbook One of my favorite all-time collections. I had a fiber arts class to teach in the afternoon--and I never want to cook after I get back from class, so I decided to do a bit of prep earlier in the afternoon. I chopped my onions, cooked the pasta, cooked the lentils, so it was just a matter of heating and assembly when i got back... Yummy! The flavors are cumin, coriander and lemon juice mixed with the red lentils, tomatoes and artichokes. I left out the red pepper flakes that give it a nice bite because of the kids, but I put them on the table so folks could add them if they wanted--kids and adults all cleared their plates and I have lots of leftovers--yeah!
