"What's Italian Lentil Stew?" I asked. Well, "you either know what it is or you don't," answered my lifelong Italian friend. And,... he added, "you either like it or you don't." OK, I like it, if you do too, I'm happy to share with you that we, all by ourselves, can make the most delicious Italian Lentil Stew....
Here's all you do: In a large pot, add 6 cups of water and a 16oz can of diced tomatos. Whisk in soup mix and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low bowl and cook uncovered for 20 - 30 minutes. Stir during cooking to avoid overflow.
The buzz on this is that It’s great for vegetarians and meat lovers alike, and we know you will love it. And I agree with that!
For that extra DIY Gourmet-in-Minutes Flair: Add precooked Italian sausage (spicey or otherwise), or any vegetable to the cooking process.
Ingredients: Lentils, precooked pinto bean flakes, celery, carrots, chicken base (containing modified food starch, salt, sugar, soy protein, dehydrated garlic and onion and chicken fat), paprika, herbs & spices and natural smoke flavor. No MS
