Pasta makes you happy

Spaghetti Bolognese – that’s where it starts. Only in Germany this spicy tomato-vegetable sauce with minced meat is called like this. The Italian calls it “Ragú” and there are thousands and a recipe variant. In search of meatless recipes, we simply replaced the minced meat with lentils. And lo and behold?
