An easy stand by meal that the kids love. I usually double the recipe and pop it in the freezer for an instant meal when time is at a premium.

I was going to post this exact recipe but you beat me to it! :o) It's one of our very favorites and even my non-lentil-loving friends will have seconds of it. We also use it over potatoes, as filling for vegetarian lasgana, etc. I usually add a bit of red wine, too. It's a great recipe!
