Judy Witts Francini, the owner of Cucina Divina. It was a post with a photo of lentil soup with chard and sausage. I was so thrilled because I wanted to make Lentils for New Years Day. Two of Italy's culinary symbols of good luck are the lentil and the pig. Another bonus was that I had every ingredient in the house.
I sauteed onion, carrot and celery. Next I added the sausage and browned that. I added the Swiss chard and after that was wilted I added Chicken broth. After the lentils were cooked they were added to the pot. I was going to add a pasta but I had the pearl barley left over from last night's dinner.
This was a hit. It was so flavorful and seasoned nicely if I do say so myself!
