Instructions

1
Peel and mince the garlic. Then wash and cut the zucchini and butternut squash into small dice.
2
Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and fry the garlic. After 1 minute, add the diced zucchini and squash and fry lightly over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often.
3
Then wash and drain the lentils and add to the skillet. Season with a little salt and your favorite spice. We used cumin and it was delicious. Lightly fry over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
4
In the meantime, fill a pan with water and bring to a boil. Then add a little salt and pasta of choice, preferably short-cut pasta such as macaroni, orzo, or conchigliette (small shells). Couscous or rice will work as well. Follow the instructions and cook for the time shown on the package.
5
Fill one side of a bowl or your lunch box with the lentils and vegetables, and fill the other side with the pasta. A really delicious meal, right?
