    Could you tell me about how much a serving would be? - 7/22/09

    I used Hillshire Farm turkey smoked sausage (comes in 14 oz packages, so I was just a little light on meat). Cooked all ingredients but sausage on low for 6 hours, then stirred in the sausage for just the last 30 minutes or so to keep it from getting mushy. This made about ten 1.3 cup servings. - 8/12/11

    Loved this! Super easy to make and reheats well for lunches. Will definitely make again. - 7/12/11

    This was really good! I read somewhere that the acid in the toms slows the lentil cooking process so I added the toms after two hours into the cooking process and next time I will add the Kielbasa in the last hour of cooking to increase the favor. I'm also curious what makes a serving? 2/3 cup? - 1/5/11

    Made for dinner tonight, but after 10 hours on low, lentils were still hard. Put it on high for 2 more hours, and that fixed it. We will have it tomorrow night for supper, reheated. It tastes delicious. Used only 1 lb kilbasa, added a diced onion & extra garlic. - 1/4/10
