We like this recipe a lot. Well, I do, the rest of my family just tolerates it because they don't love lentils as much as I do. This has a nice flavor and is not hard to make. I prefer it with the pineapple juice. I've actually been known to drain the juice off a can of pineapple chunks to use in this recipe and then serve the kids the pineapple chunks with dinner!
