    Altered ingredient amounts. we used normal pork sauages, but would next time brown them first for some colour. we missed out the celery as i dont like it. we also used red lentils as that was all we had. turned out lovely. - 28 Feb 2011

    First time I cooked this on the stove top and halved the lentils(which I think would have been too much) increased the stock and threw in a few diced potatoes .Was amazing ,the best thing i've cooked so far.Must add though that it did four of us as a main meal and that was not a huge bowl so where the 12 !! comes from I dont know ...children? Added chipolatas this time and done in the slow cooker ...amazingly....even better - 19 Jan 2012

    Delicious! I won't be adding chorizo next time though because it was a bit spicey for the kids - 23 Dec 2011
