Sausage and Lentil Soup

Linda Cobb


My husband loves the sausage and lentil soup at Carrabba's so I decided to make it at home. I searched around and found 3 or 4 different recipes...this is a combination of those recipes and a couple of tweaks of my own. It's a great winter time meal. And my husband likes it better than Carrabba's soup!
