Hearty Tomato and Lentil Soup

“I threw this soup together the other night using only ingredients I had on hand. It was fabulous, fulfilling, and best of all, cheap to make. Serve with crusty bread and shredded cheddar on top.....and a glass of red wine and a movie! PS You can also add other vegetables to this soup: anything goes!!!”
