Sometimes using leftovers requires a bit more creativity than 'heat and eat'. I just couldn't let the wonderful sauce from Saturday's Osso Bucco go to waste. I wanted chopped tomatoes in both the meatballs and the lentils, but not an entire can so is was divided. The rest of the lentils are for Wednesday.

I added a a cup of chopped tomatoes to the leftover sauce, and cooked the meatballs in the simmering sauce.

I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking. It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 20 minutes.

I use the tiny, green lentils de Puy, but you can use the larger brown or tan lentils. Do not use the red ones, they get too mushy. This makes enough to serve 4.
