    I use the Goya brand lentils -- they are a greenish/yellow. I haven't tried with any other kind

    By rinsed lentils, do you mean dry lentils that have been rinsed but not soaked yet? I'm new to this dry bean thing - but thinking this might adapt well to add some potatoes and use an Indian curry paste.

    mek - I think they're dried b/c she said she used the Goya brand and the pic is a bag of dried ones.

    You usually sort through bagged dried lentils (as with other dried beans) for any other foreign objects then rinse then cook.

    It was very good. I left off the cheese but drizzled with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.

    It will make for nice simple filling lunches this week. Thanks for posting.

    Just baked up a batch. I'm going to halve the recipe next time (it's just me and although I'll freeze the leftovers, it'll take awhile to get through them if I make the regular batch) but it was good. Thanks for sharing!!
