Lentil Soup

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 1 hrs

10 oz of Brown Lentils, rinsed well
1/2 cup of Crushed Tomatoes or any tomato product (not ketchup)
2 or 3 Cloves of Garlic, peeled but not chopped
3 Stalks of Celery, minced
2 Tbsp of Parsley, chopped
1-1/2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1-1/2 cups of Short Cut Pasta
Salt and Pepper, to taste


1) Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way with water. Add the lentils, crushed tomatoes, garlic, parsley, celery and olive oil and bring to a boil.

2) Reduce the heat a simmer and cook the soup for about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half or until the lentils are soft and tender (enough water should have evaporated at this point that the soup is looking a bit thick).

3) Add the pasta along with salt and pepper and cook until the pasta is cooked al dente. Cover the pot with a lid and let the soup sit off the heat for 10 minutes.

4)Serve right away!
