Sausage and Lentil Soup

I love Lentil Soup. I added Chicken Sausage and Spinach to this batch. Perfect for a cold, seriously cold, winter night.

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 celery stalk, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
4 Chicken Sausage Links
1 cup lentils, washed
1 bay leaf
6 cups chicken, beef, or vegetable stock
Ground black pepper
2 cups spinach

In a large pot over medium heat, add the oil. Once it is hot, add the onion and cook until soft, 1-2 minutes. Add the carrot and celery and cook for 2 minutes. Add the Chicken Sausage and brown the links. Add the lentils, bay leaf, and stock. Sprinkle with pepper. Bring to a boil, and then turn the heat down to low and cook until the lentils are tender about 30 minutes. Stir it occasionally. Once the lentils are cooked, add the spinach and simmer until the spinach wilts.

Serve with grated Parmesan Cheese.
