Lentil Rice and Veggie Bake
March 11, 2012

After a weekend away I was looking for a recipe to use the lentils and rice that I had in the refrigerator. This was perfect! Obviously I modified the recipe using lentils and rice that had been precooked and that were left-overs from a previous meal. In addition I had left-over vegies from fajitas, and asparagus from an omelet, spaghetti sauce (homemade), and some crisp bacon. I sauteed onion, garlic, celery and carrots...added them to the lentils and rice with the chopped bacon. I seasoned them with hot sauce and dried red chili peppers since the fajita vegies weren't "Italian" seasoned. Mixed in the leftover vegies and put about 1 cup of spaghetti sauce ('gravy' in our family) on top. It was great! My husband said, "This is another one of those dishes that we can never duplicate....darn it!" Thanks for helping me clean out the refrigerator, and get dinner on the table without going to the store!!
