Lentils stew with tomatoes, garlic and onions

Top Review by Busy Mom of 5 Kiddos

Having never cooked Lentils before, I wanted to find an easy recipe to use. This couldn't have been an easier or tastier! I used the basics of this recipe and added things that I thought would add to it. I added some ground sausage, carrots and celery and a few handfuls of rotini noodles. It made a huge pot and everyone loved it. Great recipe for first time Lentil cookers. Thanks for a great dinner!
