This dish came together really fast- although kind of hesitant to make this recipe I am so glad that I did! I did not find it bland in its original state but did add a bit of hot sauce to finish it off, but I love heat! Glad I am single and have leftovers!
Sausage & Lentil Casserole
Requiring 45 minutes from start to finish, this casserole classic is one of the longer recipes in this book; however, it takes only about 10 minutes to assemble. While it bakes, you can put together a salad, or simply enjoy a glass of wine. If you want to make it vegetarian, substitute soy “sausage” for the Italian sausage and vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
6 Reviews for Sausage & Lentil Casserole
This dish was quick to prepare, smelled awesome and tasted even better. It's good that they didn't add a photo because it did not look delicious and I was regretting my choice - until I tasted it. I did use 1 1/2 sausages instead of one, and when I make this again I'll use two. There was actually enough to feed 3-4 in this one!
This recipe needs a little work. We found it very bland but a good base to work with. It definitely needed a little more sausage for flavor. Can see lots of potential in this recipe. Thanks for the idea!
I doubled this recipe and added a bit more sausage (carnivores live in my house!) My 15 year old son had his friends over.....not a morsel remained! Now it is requested weekly!
I followed the recipe exactly (well, I doubled it for leftovers) and the only thing I would change next time is adding more spinach. I really doubt the recipe makes only 2 servings. With the recipe doubled, I'd say there were easily 6 servings. Especially if you served it with a salad.
My 9-year-old went back twice to refill her bowl. Her favorite part was the cheese, but I would agree with the other reviewer that it isn't needed. But, if it makes it more appealing to the kids, it's worth it to keep it in the recipe.
The sausage is in there more for flavoring; it's way more lentil and a little sausage casserole.
I will be making this regularly.
