Made for Recipe Swap #21 Aus/NZ. This was a very tasty soup. I love lentils, but my family isn't crazy about them - at least that's what they tell me - they liked this soup - go figure. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting this Stardustannie!

Made this yesterday it was a cold and snowy day here, the only changes I also used a large 28 oz can of diced tomatoes instead of the chopped fresh tomato and the puree, as that is what I had on hand. Also I put in a dash of lemon pepper and vinegar at the end of cooking time. Oh and I used Hot Italian Sausages too. Everything worked out great. Superb Lentil Soup !

This was hearty and delicious! Mine turned out more like a stew, but we liked it that way. ;-) I used some spicy smoked sausage that I had sliced and browned for the beef sausages. This definetely a meal in itself that I served with some crusty bread. ;-) Thanks for posting!
