    This is a delicious casserole and a small amount does a lot to fill you up. If you are looking for a hearty no-meat meal I would recommend this. - 1/26/11

    I couldn't find red lentils and had to use brown ones, but this turned out great and was really tasty. - 6/23/08

    I had never tried lentils before but saw a dish prepared on The Biggest Loser using them. I found this recipe and gave it a try. It is fantastic! I didn't even bake it in the oven, just used a big deep skillet on the stovetop. I used diced tomatoes instead of tomato paste, too. - 2/9/08

    Great, I will make this again. I found a blend of carrots, celery and onions in the frozen food section which really made this easy. This was also the first time I cooked lentils. I added garlic just because and this was a very tasty dish. - 10/6/09
