Step 1In a large pot of water, cook pasta for 5 minutes. Add broccoli and cook for 3 minutes or until pasta is tender but firm. Drain well and keep warm.
Step 2Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion, pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning and hot pepper flakes for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add broth and lentils; bring to a simmer.
Step 3Toss sauce with pasta to coat and serve. Sprinkle with cheese, if using.
If your family doesn’t like too much heat just reduce the hot pepper flakes to a pinch.
