This is an excellent recipe. It lends itself to many variations (vegetarian/meat sausage and stock/boullion). You can make it as a thick stew or a thinner soup, spicy or not, and can experiment with other ingredients and proportions. I've used kielbasa, smoked sausage, and linguica (precooked). I've used turkey, chicken, and beef better-than-boullion. I use more vegetables than the recipe calls for, and less tomato (I don't buy 16 oz. cans), I use Pico de Gallo seasoning in it instead of cayenne, and I don't use salt and pepper, preferring to allow the individul to season their own serving. Basically, as long as you add enough liquid to cook the lentils, it's hard to go wrong. We really love this soup.
