SO HOW'D IT GO?

What would be the cup conversion for 4 ounces lentils? Would it be 1/4?

I think this is a great base recipe. I've just made it but added more veg and some other ingredients and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe :)

This is oh so good!!!  Very hearty and quite filling.  I doubled the recipe and does it ever make alot!!!!!  A couple of containers left over so they are sitting in my freezer waiting to be eaten!

This was really spooky! Was this just my imagination, or did it really taste like a bolognese with meat?

This came out really tasty.  I have to say that instead of making the sauce from scratch I used a jarred sauce.  My little guy was hungry so I wanted to get it done ASAP.  I cooked the lentils as described and it was wonderful in the sauce.  My nine month old son loved it too. 

P.S.
I used red lentils.
