Lentil and Polish Sausage Casserole

We like lentils, and this recipe is fast, easy and cheap. I bought the sausage for 99 cents at the local Canned Foods Warehouse (aka Rainbow). You can use hot sausage or mild. I usually make this with half red and half brown lentils for the texture, but you can use all of one kind. I imagine this could be made in a crockpot, I just haven't done it. Serve with a fresh salad.

ingredients

directions

  • Saute the onions in the olive oil until brown (about 10 minutes).
  • Add the garlic and continue to cook for a minute or two.
  • Add the lentils and the sausage.
  • Add the water, bay leaf, salt (at least 1 teaspoon or to taste) and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and turn down the heat to maintain a simmer. Cook for about 1 1/2 hrs or until lentils are tender.
  • Watch the pot to make sure there is enough liquid so that the lentils don't burn.
