This is a wonderful, easy recipe for a dinner soup on a cold winter night served with a salad or even just crusty French bread. I had to make some substitutions since I discovered I had no lentils, just barley so barley it was. Also only had one can of whole, peeled tomatoes so in they went. And to add to my ineptitude I didn't start making it until 3:30 so the crock pot was out of the question, and I had to just let it simmer for 2 hours. Nonetheless, my husband had 3 servings! A definite winner! Nice and thick - more like stew than soup and with great flavor. I also added a little salt and pepper to taste but I can't wait to make it the right way next time.

This is YUM! Followed the recipe exactly, except for the sherry part. Substituted cognac and dry white wine in equal parts. Oh yeah, left out the bacon all together. My crock pot might be sub-par, and the soup was not done in 9.5 hours on low. No big deal, just turned it to high when I got home, and the lentils were cooked to perfection within a few minutes. Added a bit of salt and cayenne to my taste. Great recipe for meatless Monday.
