Lentils with Italian Sausage Recipe

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

A traditional New Year's Day dish in some regions of Italy.

Lentils with sausage will appear as a New Year's Day dish. It symbolized money, and in some areas today it is believed that eating them will guarantee a year of prosperity and good luck.

Lentils with Italian Sausage

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lentils, rinsed
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups dry white wine (or chicken stock)
  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 2 slices of pancetta (or bacon), diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 12 peppercorns
  • 3 bay leaves
  • salt to taste
  • 4 pounds of Italian sausage
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced

Directions

  1. Combine lentils, water, wine, oil, tomatoes, bacon, garlic, half the peppercorns, 2 bay leaves, and salt in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered about 1 hour, or until lentils are soft.
  2. Put the sausage, onion, carrot, celery, and remaining peppercorns and bay leaves into a large pot. Add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered 30 minutes. Remove the sausage from the liquid. Remove the casings, and cut into slices.
  3. Serve the sausage slices with lentils.
