    Engrossed's Note:

    From: "The Bean Cookbook" by Norma S. Upson. When I try it I will probably double the herbs. *Use vegetable broth to make this Vegetarian. You may try this with any kind of cheese you like.

      This was wonderful and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used minced onions instead of a regular onion. I also used chicken broth. It was a great, different side dish for us. Everyone enjoyed it.

      We loved this!! I used shredded mozzarella in the mix and topped with swiss cheese slices. Toddler, Hubby, and I all thought it is one of the best lentil dishes we have had. We get 500 calories for dinner so I paired it with Broccoli Slaw Broccoli Slaw for a fresh veggie on the side. AWESOME!

      This is really good and easy! Was a great side dish for roast chicken. I used mozzarella, but think Swiss would have worked better, so will use that next time. The herb ratio was just right for us.
