Lentil bolognese

We're going on holiday to sunny Yorkshire soon, and I was all set to order some posh  ready meals, until I reminded myself of the prices. Wow!

So, after 2 days of a massive Slimming World Fail, I thought I'd make a few homemade meals to freeze and reheat once we're there.

I love Jack Munroe's lentil bolognese recipe and this is my version.

I'd say mine serves about 4, depending on what you use it for (pasta/pizza topping, lasagna filling etc).
