  1. Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan. Add the bacon and cook over medium heat until it is golden and has released its fat.
  2. Add the onion, carrot, celery, leek, bay leaves, thyme and garlic to the pan and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add the sliced mushrooms, and cook a few more minutes until mushrooms have softened.
  3. Meanwhile, brown the sausages, then cut them into 1/2 inch pieces.
  4. Add the wine, stock and sausages to the pan and bring to the boil.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer the mixture for 20 minutes. Give it a stir from time to time, and add a little more red wine or stock if necessary.
  6. At the end of this time, add the lentils.
  7. Fold in the spinach and parsley and cook until wilted.
  8. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve piping hot.

Definately hearty and comforting! I omitted the leek cause we're not big fans of it. I also had just dry orange lentils so I threw 1 and a half cups in at step 4 and continued on. Used mild Italian sausages (cause I can't get homemade chorizo in my city), 900mL of reduced salt beef stock and a 1/2 tsp dry thyme. We ate this with a nice garlic bread and it was very satisfying! Will make this again!
