quick + easy
Start with pre-cooked lentils or cook some lentils in a saucepan on the stove.
Begin to cook the carrots, and onion in some stock on the stove. Cook until the onions are translucent.
Add the garlic and tomato paste along with the herbs and spices. Let cook until the paste has developed some color and flavor, about 3 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer on the stove. Cook the noodles in a separate pot and combine. Easy!
