    I just use veggie stock.
    Onion, garlic and olive oil in the pot then add the veggie stock, chop up all your veggies and throw them in, add your lentils and pasta, let it cook and then serve and season with salt n pepper. Enjoy with some nice toasty bread. Quick and easy. You could even make it a minestrone by adding a cpl cans of tinned tomatoes and some herbs.

    I do as above, except I blend the soup before adding the lentils or pasta.

    I make mine without any oil. The vegies "sweat" and release moisture hat they gently cook in.

    Chop onion, throw into large pot on very low heat.
    Chop 2-3 celery stalks, chuck in with the onion
    Chop 2 carrots, chuck in pot.
    Chop whatever other slow vegie you are using (cabbage, cauli, pumpkin, turnip, whatever...) Throw in pot.
    Add vegie stock, enough to cover. Also add tomatoes if you're using them.
    Chuck in lentils, I usually use at least a cup. Up the heat, bring to the boil.
    Simmer for 30 mins (longer for brown lentils)
    Add pasta
    Add any of your "quick" vegies (sliced green beans, peas, spinach etc)
    After 10-15 minutes, remove from heat, serve.
