I had tried serveral different lentil soups. I took the parts that I liked best from each to make this recipe.

It makes a great meal with a salad and some crusty bread.

How to Make Kathy's Lentil Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large stock pot over medium heat, saute onion, garlic, carrots and celery with the oil for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 more minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and their juice. Simmer 5 minutes or so.
  4. Stir in the lentils. Add broth and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the lentils are done. About 50 minutes or so.
  5. Stir in the cooked ditalini and cook for 3 minutes to heat through.

    Note: Cooking your pasta before adding it to the soup will keep it from absorbing too much liquid and turning to mush.
  6. Check seasoning and serve.
