Here is my recipe for Italian style Lentils, serve with your favorite sausage!
350gms of green or brown lentils (I use tinned)
1 large onion, chopped small
2 stalks of celery, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
100gms bacon lardons
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
A sprig of rosemary
Fry the onion, garlic and celery in olive oil until soft, add the bacon and the rosemary. Fry until pretty much cooked before adding the tomatoes and the lentils.
Simmer for about ten minutes and serve!
For a spicy version add a pinch of chilli powder with the tomatoes!
