Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 cup olive oil, divided
    4 large links of sweet Italian sausage, casings removed (I used half of this, preferring the sausage to not dominate the soupís flavor [update] and from the comments, it sounds like most of you preferred it with just 2 links as well)
    1 medium onion, diced
    2 celery stalks, sliced or diced
    2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into half-moons or diced
    4 cloves garlic, sliced (reserve half for later in recipe)
    Kosher salt
    A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
    1 cup brown lentils, sorted and rinsed
    2 bay leaves
    1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
    6 cups water
    Freshly ground black pepper
    3 to 4 cups shredded or thinly ribboned Swiss chard leaves or kale
    Grated Pecorino Romano cheese to finish


Serving Size: 6 bowls
