A bowl of lentil spaghetti seasoned with zucchini, black olives, cherry tomatoes and pine nuts.

Homemade Red Lentil "Guitar Spaghetti"

Try the unique texture of the guitar spaghetti













300g red lentil flour
100g plain flour (I used type 00)
160ml water
A pinch of salt

For the condiment:
1 large zucchini
100g black olives
Cherry tomatoes
Pine nuts
1 shallot
Olive oil


  • Blend red lentils until you reach a powdery consistency.
  • In a bowl, mix red lentil flour, all purpose flour, water and a pinch of salt. Transfer to a working surface and knead until you have a smooth dough (you can add some more water if the dough is too dry and vice-versa). The dough is tougher than usual.
  • Cut a part of your dough and start rolling it using a rolling pin. Add some flour to avoid the dough sticking to the working surface.
  • Transfer on top of the “Guitar” and with a rolling pin, push the dough through the strings until you get the spaghetti.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the spaghetti for 5-6 minutes.
  • Serve with the condiment of your choice. I used zucchini, cherry tomatoes, black olives and pine nuts.
