This is so good! I made it as written with the exception of the pancetta - if I had any on hand, I would have added it as well. I served it over rigatoni with a sprinkling of fresh parsley and parmesan. I will definitely make this again!
This is a great recipe. I added a little extra dash of red wine and substituted basil for the parsley as I had no parsley to hand. Thickened marvellously and lentils retained their shape. Many thanks to Beth E for posting. Regards, Fiona
