2. in large sauce pan, dribble olive oil, add onion (chopped), garlic (chopped), pepper (chopped), mushrooms (sliced) and seasonings - sautee until pepper becomes soft

3. add tomatoes to vegetables - and let simmer

4. when lentils are ready, and them to sauce - cover and let simmer while preparing pasta

5. stir occasionaly

I tend to cook in a haphazard, "that looks about right" way without documenting what exactly I've done, so this in an approximation - but it went over well with my non-veggie family.
