My husband had been nagging for a while for me to make a lentil casserole like his mom used to make. I found this super easy recipe, and he loved it! fantastic hit! He even liked it better than mom's! (Sorry mom!) So yummy and easy. I just added more broth than listed... full 15oz can



Great recipe! I made this with brown rice and it was fabulous. The brown rice made it a very hearty meal. I added a bit more salt and used HOT italian sausage and browned it thoroughly before adding the rest of the ingredients. It took a bit longer, but I am sure it added to the overall flavor of the dish. I like flavorful food and I found this one very good!



This is a very basic meal. Don't expect a wow of flavor but rather a warm simple, wholesome tasting meal. I halved the recipe and my 3 year old and I finished it at one sitting. I used 2 large links of mild italian turkey sausage and took the meat out of the casing. Browned the meat in a 2 quart pot, removed, and then added the onion and some chopped celery. Then soon added the broth and a splash of water, brown rice (healthier and takes just as long to cook as the lentils) and lentils. Brought to a boil, then set to low for 40 min. Added the sausage back into the mix a few minutes before the lentils were done. My son gobbled this up.
