It's quick and easy, but I would definitely cut down on tomato paste. I think this recipe has great potential, but all in all, it was just OK.

A tasty recipe and healthy too! I enjoyed all the flavors. Made for the Australian Recipe swap-Oct. 2009.

*Reviewed for Aussie NZ Forum Recipe Tag* Giving 5 stars as this was super easy and quick to make. A really yummy topping that was a whole family pleaser....including the meat lovers. Very good on the budget meal to. I served my lentil bolognese over gluten-free pasta. The left-overs are going to be for breakfast served on toast. I think this would be a great topping for hot potatos or served casserole style topped with mashed potato like a cottage pie. Photo also to be posted.
