Trying new foods and not having to do the prep or cleanup myself is one of my favorite favorite things. Sometimes its just so nice to get dressed up and get out of the house. But sometimes it’s also nice to be able to make your restaurant favorites in the comfort of your own home. It helps when your restaurant favorite comes in the form of a super easy and SUPER DELICIOUS Sausage and Lentil Soup from Carrabbas!Copycat Carrabba's Sausage and Lentil Soup...your favorite restaurant comfort food made easy at home!

This soup is such an EASY RECIPE and you can freeze itCarrabba’s is such a great restaurant. I constantly crave their Chicken Bryan (which I recreated HERE). Whenever I go there I eat way too much and come home stuffed. I have to get a soup, salad, entree, and of course dessert. But when I eat at home, it’s much easier to cap it at just soup (and wine). Copycat Carrabba's Sausage and Lentil Soup...your favorite restaurant comfort food made easy at home!

How to Make Copycat Carrabba’s Sausage and Lentil Soup

This is almost a one pot meal. It actually could be a one pot meal if you use the stock pot or dutch oven to brown your meat. But I chose to brown the meat in a skillet first. But even so, two dishes to wash and tons of soup to show for it. You can freeze this too for amazing comfort food lasting throughout Winter.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups dry lentils
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • fresh basil, oregano and shredded parmesan for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, brown sausage on medium/high heat, crumbling as you cook. When sausage is almost done, add in the garlic and allow to cook.
  2. In a large stock pot or dutch oven, combine all ingredients and bring to boil.
  3. Reduce heat to simmer and cover.
  4. Simmer for about 1 hour or until lentils are tender. If soup is too thick, add water for desired consistency.
  5. Sprinkle with basil, oregano, and parmesan for garnish.
  6. Enjoy!

Notes

**You can also use pre-steamed (ready to eat) lentils. In this case, you would want about 3 cups presteamed lentils. You can cook the soup for about 20 minutes or until fully heated through if using the precooked lentils.

Am I a terrible food blogger because I don't really like going out to eat? I guess I like to eat things I'm comfortable with.. how boring!! But I like soup :)

    Loved the soup added a touch of Apple Cider vinegar to each individual bowl.

I am loving this because we are huge lentil fans here. My kids actually request lentils for dinner. I usually make the same three soups (mostly because my family loves them so much) but I'm always up for trying something new. Thanks Becky!

It's been getting so cold around my house that all I want to do is have soup all day. This looks like just the thing I need!
