This was really nice, anything with red wine and sausages put together is a winner.

Made this last night and it went down a treat!

Yum! Really delicious. Used tinned puy lentils so cooking time was spot on. So quick and easy definitely one to make again.

Before I say anything, I want to say that I use this site on a regular basis and I've had remarkable success with every recipe on the site. I always cook for myself and my girlfriend and very rarely do we eat takeaway. However after cooking 'this' I was left with no alternative. What I was eventually left with was what I can descibe as a non descript bowl of brown sludge which had a close resemblence to cat sick. Do not try this.

Lentils definitely need longer....this is the first time I've done puy lentils and they were a little on the hard side!

I enjoyed this meal and it's a good healthier alternative to sausage and mash. It's not necessarily on my "definitely do again" list though.

Tasty, best with a dollop of mustard mixed-in for a little extra kick :) Anyone trying this recipe should note that the cooking time and liquid quantities are way out for Puy lentils, or other whole lentils for that matter. I wouldn't do this recipe with split lentils, however, as then you'd just get a mush. Next time, I plan to cook the lentils first/separately and only add them for the last 5 minutes. I'm hoping that'll keep the sauce clearer as it is in the picture for this recipe.

Lentils are so under rated and this is a great recipe to get people eating more of them! Tasty but agreed needs longer cooking time.

The worst recipe that I ever followed from this website! I just can't understand how they came up with that picture from that recipe. I have never had trouble from any oher recipe yet his ended up looking like a pile of dog's mess.

I recommended this dish to my mother in law and she loved it and decided to make it for a party of 150 people. I got there at 2pm and nothing had been done so I had to customize it, here's my story and variation on the recipe
