Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a low heat and cook the onion, celery, carrots and fresh peppers for 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened, adding a splash of water if the vegetables start to stick to the pan. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the thyme, cinnamon and chilli flakes and cook for a further minute.
  2. Put the roasted peppers and tinned tomatoes in a tall jug and blitz with a stick blender (or use a food processor). Add the tomato mixture to the pan along with the lentils, tomato purée and stock. Simmer over a low heat for 20-25 minutes, adding a splash of water if needed, until the lentils are tender. Season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the spaghetti to pack instructions until al dente. Drain well, then return the spaghetti to the pan and stir through one-quarter of the lentil sauce. Divide between plates or bowls, spoon over the remaining ragù, then season to taste and serve topped with the crumbled feta.
