Ingredients:  
2 cups lentils washed
Handful of pearl barley
Smaller handful of ditalini pasta
24 oz of good vegetable broth, all natural

4 cloves garlic chopped fine and mashed
Small handful parsley chopped fine
1 large carrot minced

Directions:
Wash lentils and then add to large pot with vegetable broth, onions, garlic, celery and parsley. Bring to boil and cook for approximately 30 minutes. Add pearled barley after 30 minutes and cook another 40 minutes adding broth, or water, if needed. After the 40 minutes is up add the carrots and ditalini pasta, mushrooms and their broth, salt and pepper to taste and cook until pasta is al dente. This should not be a soup consistency but a thick stew like consistency. Serve hot with a teaspoon of the porcini cream on top…. Lentils should be soft, barley chewy, and the pasta al dente. It’s really good.
