Lentil pasta salad

It’s hot outside here in France, so we’re eating cold meals everyday because I can not be bothered to heat a pan or the oven. Therefor, I bring to you the very randomly assembled but somehow tasty lentil pasta salad.

You want to use small pasta, unlike I did. Otherwise, the salad seem overcrowded with pasta, and we don’t want that, do we? Go for some tiny penne (it’s like penne, but half the size, you know?).

For the dressing, I went for the usual, because why would you change something that works really well? Olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley of course. Enjoy !
