Thinking of franco and zoecat right now as we are cooking up the Castelluccio lentils we bought there into a hopefully delicious soup. Great memories!

Enjoy your meal! (And in the unlikely case that you don't, ask me for the recipe for that Castelluccio lentil soup.)

Hi franco, I'll trade you that recipe for the one we used tonight. Deal?

We'll be leaving at the end of the week - a week in Rome then 2 in Umbria. I've put lots of your recs into my contacts so we can check them out.

Wonderful TR! We too loved Gubbio. Welcome to the club of those "taken in" as you say by Italy! An amazing country. DH and I wanted to buy something over there but could never decide what we liked the most!

franco, this is the basic recipe we used. We adapted it though.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/m...ipe/index.html

We left off the chili oil.
We sauteed a half pound of small, cubed pancetta in the oil first before adding the onion.
We sauteed celery with the onions.
We didn't use pasta shells.
The Lentils took longer to cook than the recipe calls for.
We used homemade chicken stock.

It was very good.

We also toasted crusty Italian bread, soaked it in Nunzi olive oil and poured the soup over that and then drizzled a little on top of the soup.

I miss Umbria.

Umbria. I was so homesick that I misspelled it!

I think we have decided that next trip will be a combo Tuscany/Umbria trip. Probably more Tuscany than Umbria this time.

Piccolina: Just an FYI - see that yellow/gold star at the top of the page? You can click that to bookmark/save a thread to your favorites. Or you can click on the envelope symbol to e-mail it to yourself.

You should/could have had the courtesy to put in to the title "Caution. Do not read on an empty stomach".

I'm starving and feeing quite sorry for myself when I think of what I can muster up out of my fridge.

GREAT REPORT!
