Lentils in Tomato-Feta Sauce

This is a tasty vegetarian dish that I like to throw together when I want something comforting yet healthy and simple. It's a great as a meal on its own, or as a side dish. It's best served with fresh pita bread to scoop it up! 


1 540mL can red lentils (about 2 and 1/2 cups cooked), drained and rinsed
1 can tomato sauce
1/3 cup feta cheese, cubed
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried basil


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, then transfer to an 8x8" or 9x9" baking dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbly and thick. Serve as a side dish or as a vegetarian main dish with pita bread or over top cooked rice.
