Ingredients

  • 300 g (~ 10 1/2 oz) pasta
  • 200 g (~ 1 cup) red lentils
  • 150 g (~ 1 cup) frozen sweetcorn
  • 150 g (~ 1 cup) frozen peas
  • 200 g (~ 1 2/3 cups) frozen sliced mushrooms
  • 175 g mature cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1 3/4 cups when grated)

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients except for the cheese to a large saucepan. Add a generous amount of water, and boil for around 15 minutes, until the pasta is soft and the lentils are starting to break down. Drain the water.
