  2. In a sauce pan, saute garlic and onion until toasty and almost browning. Add bell peppers, mushy eggplant and italian seasoning. Cook for 5 mins.
  3. Addc rushed tomatoes, 1 cup water and cooked lentils. Bring to a boil and lower the heat until the sauce is just simmering. Cook for 5 mins and season to taste.
