If you've tuned in to Z Living's exciting new show The Big Fat Truth
, you've seen this recipe in action — in the show, host JD Roth challenges show participant Ryan Benson in a race against the clock: Can JD make this healthy plant-based lentil pasta dinner faster and cheaper than Ryan can pick up fast food for his family of five?
Check out more about The Big Fat Truth here, and watch the video below to see these two battle it out:
This is the very recipe JD Roth creates for Ryan Benson and his family in the show.
And given that it takes approximately 10 minutes, costs less than $15, and can feed 5, you'll want to make it one of your go-to meals! Even better, this meal fits the whole food, plant-based diet
that all participants of The Big Fat Truth
follow — with some astounding results
— and is an excellent way to try your hand at creatiing a plant-based meal yourself.
A tip straight from JD Roth:
ripe tomatoes for this recipe — they're the tastiest, and you want their juice to make a perfect sauce.
