This came from a cookbook that was done years and years ago from the Andy Griffith Show. Aunt Bee is Andy's Aunt Bee. It's a great tasting soup.

We really enjoyed this tasty, hearty soup. It was easy to make and the short cooking time made it a perfect lunch dish. The lentils were very good with the sausage and vegetable. I made this soup exactly as directed. Thanks for sharing this wonderful soup. Now I have another great soup to go on my fall and winter soup list.

I made this vegatarian style, it was delicious. A keeper.

This is a great comforting soup for a cold, blowy, wintery night. Instead of garlic salt, I used 1 clove of real garlic, minced. I also cut the salt down to 1/2 teaspoon. The sausage and tomato products have more than enough salt. I added some cracked black pepper. This is a very nice, filling soup.
