From Safeway Brand Lentils package: "Our tasters gave four-stars to this nutritious and easy to prepare entree. Smokey sausage, lots of spices and fresh greens give it wonderful flavor". I have made this stew a couple of times, each to success. I usually use what I have in the pantry, so it never - comes out exactly the same. I am posting the recipe as written - make adjustments for your own preferences.
