It’s been getting cooler at night lately, which is a welcome change from the sweaty summer nights that have been in full swing. It’s also been a nice change of pace for meals since it’s not as painful to turn on the stove or consider a warm meal. While my original intention for this dish was to make a lentil and sausage summer salad, I ended up making this comforting bowl of creamy lentils, spicy sausages, tomatoes, and spinach. It’s all made in one pot (yay for easy clean up!) and it freezes great. I like to make a double batch and keep leftovers for quick lunches. If you are a vegetarian, you can leave out the sausage or substitute in vegetarian crumbles in stead.
