130 g olives, e.g. Kalamata
2 red chillies, chopped
30 g parsley, chopped

Cook the pasta and lentils as directed on the packaging. Fry the onions for one minute. Add the garlic, chilli and tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in capers, olives, pasta and lentils and season with salt and pepper.
