Easy Smoky Lentils

I decided to make this Monday like Tuesday dinner meatless.  After a long weekend, something easy and light is all I can handle.

One 15 oz can lentils
10 oz spinach
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons olive oil
Smoky paprika
Cayenne pepper
Black pepper

Cook the spinach in a skillet with the margarine and oil.  Add the lentils.  Stir until everything is heated through.  Remove from heat.  Add the spices and stir to combine.  I really think spice amounts can't be dictated.  You know what you like right?  Use as much as you enjoy.  The men who live here like garlic so I may be a little heavy handed on that.

Serve over rice, potatoes, or pasta.  A tomato salad on the side works great too!  We have lots of garden tomatoes.

Easy!  But yummy!
