The Best Lentil Stew Yet!

I was planning on only doing pasta recipes all week. Afterall...Presto Pasta Night Roundups only have ONE first birthday party. And I do plan on making a doozie of a pasta tonight. Hopefully I'll get it written up in time for the Big Birthday Bash tomorrow. But....well, let's start the story at the beginning.

I love Wednesday's NY Times. There's always some great food related articles and often fantastic recipes that I usually squirrel away and sometimes ... even get to try out. Last week I came across a wonderful sounding lentil & merguez stew and then on Tuesday I happened to be at Pete's Frootique and bought some lamb and merguez sausages that looked so good.

This is a short post, because really...there are no words good enough to describe this excellent stew. I could go on about the richness, the depth of flavor, the sweetness that balances so perfectly with the spice of the merguez. I could...but I won't. I'll just say this once.....

YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT!!!! It's that good. Trust me, you'll thank me later.
