Lentil & Sausage Soup

Tonight i made this soup for dinner. It was delicious! We ate it all up! It is also healthy. YAY! =) It's from my Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook.

2 14 ounce cans reduced sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup brown lentils, rinsed & drained
1 cup sliced celery (2 stalks)
1 cup chopped carrot
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 ounces cooked smoked sausage links, quartered lengthwise & sliced

In a large saucepan combine broth, water, lentils, celery, carrot, onion, dried thyme (if using), cayenne pepper & garlic. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until vegetables & lentils are tender. Stir in sausage & fresh thyme (if using). Heat through.
