Wow! This was SO good! I only had one child who didn't like it! I changed the recipe simply because I had a stockpot full of turkey broth (and parts) from yesterday's turkey. So I used the whole bag of lentils just for the left overs! I ended up with 4, 1 serving, portions that I froze in quart size freezer bags. So now when I don't have leftovers for hubby's lunch (or I'm hungry, lol) I can go to the freezer and pick this out!
