Loved it! I just added some beef cubes (for stews) and oregano and it was a success at my family dinner. Will do it again for guests. Read More

Well lentils are good and wholesome but I would not feed this to my kids too often. It will not go into my regular rotation. Read More

I loved it! The second time I made it though I added a box of chopped spinach in place of the canned tomatoes and I also used chicken broth in place of the water. I absolutely loved this variety of the recipe!!! Read More

This recipe would be a good way to get kids to eat a healthy soup! I used turkey frankfurters so it was not too bad. Good taste and a nice hearty soup. Read More
