Ever wonder what to do with the skin of parmigiano cheese? As kids in Italy we would all fight over it.
Place a bag of lentil in a large sauce pot and fill 1/2 way with water. Add a pinch of salt and add stew sized carrots, stew sized zucchini , stew sized sweet potatoes, onions and the hard parmigiano skin. Simmer for at least an hour - or until lentil are cooked very soft. Season with salt pepper a drizzle of olive oil and enjoy!
