Actually, we liked this recipe more than 3 Stars would suggest-- a good dish using modest ingredients. Just not a special dish that I would serve guests. Great for a week-night, using kitchen staples. I made a half-recipe, which was just right for two people to enjoy for dinner and a couple of lunches. I also froze one serving as an experiment, since I would love to be able to pull out a bowl for lunch on a winter day. If it works out, I'll be making a full recipe next time, so that I can freeze half. I did find that left-overs were a tad bland, having soaked up the liquid, so I added a few spoons of barbeque sauce, which really brighteded the flavor.

I make this all the time in the fall and winter. One of our favorites! Easy, yummy, and makes a ton! Very little seasoning, but the wine and tomato paste adds a unique flavor.

this was a great recipe!!! it was easy to make a great for a cold winter's day. i served this dish over white rice. i would suggest doubling the amount of sausage. i used two packs of kielbasa and i 'm glad i did - 16 oz is a lot of lentils.
