3 stalks of celery

2 Yukon gold potatoes
1 bunch of Swiss chard
1 carton of vegetable stock
1 cup of water
1 can of low sodium lentils
1 cup of small pasta shells or pastina

1. Chop onion, carrot and celery. Heat olive oil in large pot and sautee for five minutes.

2. Add lentils, pepper, thyme and combine well. Add vegetable stock, water and bring to a boil. Add your potatoes, cover partially and simmer.

3. Once potatoes are tender add pasta and Swiss chard. Cook until pasta is cooked and chard has wilted.
