This was our supper last night and it was very satisfying. I followed the recipe and we enjoyed it.
I think next time I will add less broth, or more lentils as I would like it a little thicker, but the flavor was perfect. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Made for a cook a thon, and all my best thoughts go right along with this review. This was easy, fairly quick to make, I had everythign in the house, and even if you didn't, this would be a really inexpensive soup to make. I calculated under 3.00$ for 4 1.5 cup servinfgs, and it was thick like that, could be thinned down farther. Very tasty, I admit to adding a bit of extra Italian sausage seasoning, otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter, even using just the half pound of sausage, which is plenty for the soup. I will make this again and again. It is the kind of soup that will probably be even better tomorrow and will freeze beautifully. I also liked the fact that it only really made 4 big servings. Not too much. Really good, needs to be discovered by more people!
