    tammy dalton's Note:

    I found this recipe at The Joy of Soup website. It is very similar to Carrabba's Sausage and Lentil soup. It was so good I just had to share. I put the veggies all in the food processor and diced the fine. Everything was about the size of the lentil

      I brought home a cup of the soup from Carrabbas to look over while eating and noticed that it had bacon in it, so I diced, cooked, drained and added a package of smoked bacon. I omitted extra salt and red pepper flakes because I used hot sausage and 1.5 cartons of chicken broth with salt and figured everyone could adjust theirs to taste. Everyone loved it! Also, I threw everything into the crockpot and let it cook on low for about 4 hours rather than cooking it on the stove top (I did brown and drain the sausage and bacon.) Will make this again and again, especially in the cold months.

      AWESOME! My husband liked it so much he's talking about bringing the recipe to work to give to the guys to take home to their wives (he works on a construction site) AND sending a copy to his mother! We love the Carabba's version, and this is very close. I used chicken sausage, because that is what I had in the freezer, but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. This one is definitely going to be a regular at our house!

      Yummy! The only changes I made were to NOT puree part of the soup (I liked the texture the way it was; use sweet sausage instead of hot, and to double the chili flakes, oregano, thyme, and fennel seed. I just love it, and will definitely make it again. It's just a bit spicy, and the fennel seed really makes this taste like Italian sausage. A chunk of crusty bread on the side would make this a perfect dinner for a cool night.
