  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 zucchinis, chopped
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (14 ½ oz cans) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups dry lentils (I used brown)
  • 2 tsp salt

  1. Cook and brown the sausage in skillet over medium/high heat.  Move the sausage around and crumble as cooking.

  2. Add in the garlic to skillet towards end of meat cooking time and cook for about 1 minutes.

  3. Add meat mixture into dutch oven along with all of the other ingredients, and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to simmer and cover dutch oven.
