Am I a fan of lentils and lentil soups? Absolutely! I covered in another post
why lentils are good for your health, the planet, and your wallet
in another post. Besides those reasons, I love a good homemade lentil soup because it's so versatile.

Heat oil in large pot on medium high heat.
Add onions and celery and sautee for a few minutes until they start to soften.
Add carrots, sauce, water, and lentils.
Cover and bring to a gentle boil.
Reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 35 to 45 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
The taste of your soup will vary depending on which spaghetti sauce you used. You may want to add garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, or your favorite hot sauce.
