3. Bake in the oven on gas mark 5, if cooking the lentil bake straight away cook for 20 minutes. or if from chilled 40 minutes.
I Managed to make 5 medium size portions that i put in foil containers with lids, to freeze. Remember to defrost before cooking and bake for 40 minutes. If you would like to make this healthier just leave out the cheese.
