Lentil soup has been a favorite of mine since early childhood. Every time my mom would make this soup, it was my job to sort through the lentils to make sure there were no forign objects. It takes me right back to being in the kitchen with mom.

How To Make

    In a large stockpot, add the olive oil, then the pancetta to render the fat. Add garlic, onion, carrots, celery, and saute 5-10 minutes. Then add the bag of lentils, followed by the beef broth. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cover the pan. Cook till lentils are almost done, adding water to pot as needed. Last 10 minutes, add the pasta and let that cook. When lentils and pasta are cooked, ladle into bowls, and top with a drizzle of olive oil, and ENJOY.
