WARM LENTIL & PASTA SOUP
Warm Lentil & Pasta Soup
Soup's on! With the dreary cold weather, nothing is more comforting that a warm bowl of soup. I've had dry lentils sitting in my pantry for far too long and today was the perfect day to use them in soup. Lentils are seasoned with the savory saltiness of bacon and pancetta while pasta adds texture and bite in this hearty Warm Lentil & Pasta Soup with Pancetta. It will keep you nice and cozy on those cold fall and winter nights... Lentils weren't a common pantry item in my kitchen until recently. I love how easy they are to cook compared to dry beans. They're also packed with protein making them a healthy dish as well! What I love about this soup is how rustic it is. I added gluten free macaroni pasta to make it a heartier soup, if not a stew, since I opted not to have too much liquid. If you prefer more broth, add it! This is a recipe you can certainly tailor to fit your tastes.
