This recipe is one of my mom's best! Everyone likes their own mother's cooking but everyone also likes my mom's cooking...lol...
1 can lentils
2 cans water or chicken broth-if you think the soup too dense,you can add more water.
1/2 chopped onion
1 stalk chopped celery
1 chopped carrot
Small splash of vinegar
Saute veggies in a small amount of olive oil just to soften not to brown so stir constantly for a few min. ADD lentils,water & vinegar Bring to a boil & then lower heat to low so it simmers for about half an hour.You can add 1/4 cup tubettini or other small cut pasta- optional but recommended.Cook pasta until done(10 or 15 min)
