As others have mentioned, the cook time is off. After three hours on high, lentils were still crunchy. Had to cook it for another hour and a half at least. Two pounds of sausage is also a little excessive. I used one pound and even that was a little much. It made the stew greasier than it needed to be. Lentils are plenty hearty on their own and very high in protein. I doesn't need all that sausage. It just gets soggy and spongy after four and a half hours on high anyway. You could use all the same ingredients and cook this recipe on the stove in twenty minutes. I'd fry the sausage in a skillet first, then saute the carrot and celery in the sausage-greased pan along with some onion and garlic, and add all that into the pot with the other remaining ingredients. It would be so much faster.
