    1. 1
      Rinse your lentils very well and set aside.
    2. 2
      Dice your vegetables and garlic. Nice, small and even dice.
    3. 3
      Cook bacon. I do this in the oven, but it can be done in the pot as well. Just avoid excessive darkening as it makes a murky and bitter soup.
    4. 4
      Cook sausage. I always do this in the pot itself.
    5. 5
      Pour off all but about a tablespoon of fat. Chop and add cooked bacon, adding about a tablespoon of that fat as well.
    6. 6
      Add the vegetables and soften about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the vegetables with seasonings, as desired.
    7. 7
      Add the tomatoes.
    8. 8
      Add the chicken broth, leaving about 2 inches to allow for the displacement caused by the lentils. Bring to a boil.
    9. 9
      Add lentils, return to boil, then drop to simmer. Simmer on a medium low heat until lentils are tender and flavors blend.
    10. 10
      I do not add salt until the very end, as it frequently isn't necessary. I top with parmesan cheese. This freezes beautifully, which is good as it makes a lot of soup.
