I read the reviews, and many said this was bland, so I made adjustments accordingly. I added a chopped jalapeno to the onions and garlic, and then added some chopped ham which I had in the fridge. There were no canned lentils in my supermarket, so I substituted a can of black beans. Since the recipe stated to add the beans undrained, which means extra sodium, I omitted the salt. It already was very thick, so I cut back on the tomato paste, and added some chicken broth to reach the consistency I was looking for. I realized after I took the photo that I'd forgotten to add the mozzarella, and I have to say that I really didn't like what the cheese did to the appearance. In the future, I think I'll omit the mozzarella, and just put some shredded parmesan on the table to sprinkle on as a topping. I almost look at this recipe as a base, so just taste as you go and adjust the seasonings to suit your taste. I know, I know, I made a number of changes to this recipe, but the final outcome was very satisfying, and man, is this easy to make!!
