A note about serious food allergies

Batman and Robin, peanut butter and jelly, summer and baseball… some pairings are just natural duos, and some pairings we never think of until they exist. This meal is the latter; we never thought spaghetti and lentils went together until we had one taste of this. Now, we can't imagine a universe without this unconventional and tantalizing marriage of textures and tastes.
