      This is wonderful and packed full of healthy veggies. We used leftover spaghetti sauce and left out the bell pepper and onions. Because I live in a high altitude area and never know how the beans will behave I soaked the lentiles for a couple of hours before using them--the result was tender lentiles and wonderful soup. We had this with Pumpkin Rye Yeast Bread Pumpkin Rye Yeast Bread--the perfect accompaniant. Thanks for sharing this keeper--we will be having this often this winter.

      Pretty good. If I make this again, I will either soak the lentils first or cook them longer (I cooked them close to 10 hours but they were just a tad undercooked I think). I'd add more liquid too. Maybe vegetable broth or beef broth or something.
