While lentils are cooking, cook rice in 2 cups of water, or according to package directions. Also, cook macaroni noodles in until al dente. Combine lentils, rice and macaroni in large pot. Saute onions and garlic in pan in olive oil until browned (has to be brown...translucent doesn't have the same taste as browned - trust me!). If you chose to add chili pepper, do so now (towards the end of them browning) * If you chose to add the chicken, boil and cube it, then continue: Add tomato sauce to onions and garlic and heat until bubbling.
