    2½ cups chicken or vegetable broth
    1½ cups water
    ¾ cup lentils, picked over and rinsed
    ½ cup brown rice
    15-ounce can diced tomatoes with juice
    2 Italian sausages, cooked, quartered lengwise, and sliced
    3 carrots, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise
    ½ onion, chopped

    ½ tsp dried oregano
    ½ tsp dried thyme
    1 bay leaf
    2 tb vinegar, or to taste

In a heavy kettle combine the broth, 1½ cups water, the lentils, the rice, the tomatoes with juice, the sausages, the carrots, the onion, the celery, the garlic, the basil, the oregano, the thyme, and the bay leaf. Bring the liquid to a boil and simmer the mixture, covered, stirring occasionally, for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the lentils and rice are tender.

    I added a little more rice to thicken it up a little- seemed kind of watery. Good flavor. - 9/28/08

    This was okay, but not a favorite of anyone in my household. My kids thought it was too spicy. - 12/13/07

    It's very good. Don't expect lentil soup. More like vegetable soup, but also has lentils. The classico with italian sausage gives it a really nice flavor. - 11/3/07
