  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Then add oil, onion and garlic. Sauté for about 3 minutes with frequent stirring till onion is golden brown.
  2. Add carrots and stir. Cover and let cook for 3-4 minutes more, then add tomato purée and stir.
  3. Add cayenne pepper, basil, oregano and lentils. Bring mixture to a simmer. Add salt, water and agave syrup. Stir. Add a bit more water if you don’t like the mixture too thick.

Notes

You can use traditional noodles if you don’t like Zucchini or spiralized carrot and make the sauce just with lentils which also taste yummy.
