All you have to do is:

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, mushroom, zucchini and garlic. Cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add lentils, grated carrot and 700ml of water to vegetables in saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 35 minutes, until lentils are just tender.

Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste and the remaining100ml of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, season with salt and pepper, oregano and basil, cover and simmer for another 20 minutes. If necessary, add more water to keep the sauce from sticking. Be careful not to dilute; the sauce should be quite thick.

In the meantime cook pasta in salted boiling water. Once cooked mix well with the sauce and serve warm.
