I absolutely LOVE this recipe. This was SO delicious, the best I have ever tasted. Even my husband who doesn’t usually like lentils loved it and asked for seconds!

I made this tonight and we all loved it! Will definitely make it again....I left out the parsley since I didn't have any but think it doesn't really need it anyway.
