- 250 g of Monte Castello Lentils;
- 1 cotechino (Italian pork sausage);

- 1 bay leaf;
- Extra virgin olive oil to taste;
- Salt to taste;

Boil the Monte Castello Lentils in salted water for about 25 minutes (15 minutes in a pressure cooker), leaving them slightly al dente. In a separate pan, sauté the chopped carrot, celery and onion in 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, then add the tomatoes, herbs, salt and pepper to taste and cook for another 10 minutes. Then add the lentils to the tomato and leave to flavor. In a separate pot bring water to a boil and dip the cotechino after poking holes in it with a fork and let it cook. Once cooked, drain the cotechino and cut it into slices. Add the lentils to the cotechino and serve hot.
