Lentil & Sausage Soup Recipe

This Lentil & Sausage Soup is awesome!  Even if you don't like Lentils, you still need to try this recipe.  It's a home run!  Thanks to blog reader (and my MaMa's friend) Ali P. for sharing this recipe with us.  It makes enough for two meals and it tastes just as good when it's reheated. 

Lentil and Sausage Soup is perfect on a cool day!
