Sicilian Lentil Salsa
Sicilian Lentil Salsa
(Salsa Siciliana con Lenticchie)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1 small zucchini, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup dry lentils
3 cups water
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 and 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1/2 cup water

Directions:
 
In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat.
 
Add onions, mushrooms, zucchini and garlic.
 
Cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add lentils and 3 cups water to vegetables.
 
Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally.
 
Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 45 to 60 minutes.

Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar and 1/2 cup water.
 
Bring to a boil.
 
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
 
If necessary, add more water to keep the sauce from sticking. Be careful not to dilute; the sauce should be quite thick. Serves 8.

That's it!
