Cook's Notes

Ordinary brown lentils can be substituted for French green lentils, but they will require about eight minutes less cooking time.

    I served this with the bacon-and-herb shrimp - really paired well and cut the richness of the shrimp. I didn't have any balsamic on hand so I threw in a tsp or so of dijon mustard. I think I overcooked my lentils a little as they got a little mushy - otherwise, a good recipe. Smelled great while cooking - had everyone salivating!
