This is a good meatless recipe. I tweaked it quite a bit, so if you don't like tweaking, stop here! I added diced celery and grated carrot with the onion (to use leftovers). I used leftover tomato sauce instead of the tomato paste, and a can of petite diced tomatoes instead of the fresh tomato. I did add a tablespoon of sugar, as I cooked the canned tomatoes down (slow boil for about 15 mion) rather than adding ketchup. The mixture tasted a little sweet, but after adding slightly more than 1 1/2 c lentils (mine were already cooked) to the mixture, it was perfect. I served it on buttered slices of whole-grain bread. The half-recipe made enough for four servings, easily.. Calling it Sloppy Sams is perfect. I'm looking forward to leftovers, as this is probably one of those mixtures that is better once the flavors meld. And I'll really try to make it exactly like the recipe sometime to see if it's even better the recipe's way.
