lentil soup with rice and spinach, or minestra di riso con lenticchie 
e spinaci: rice is one of the finest ingredients for a soup, far 
superior (i think) to noodles at providing body, and works especially 
well with lentils. the recipe will serve 4: 
 
prep time : 20min 
cook time : 60min 
 
1 cup  (200 g) short-grained rice
1 cup  (200 g) lentils, soaked for 4 hours
1 bunch  spinach, washed and cut into strips
2 clove  garlic
  an onion
1   rib celery
1 cup  plain tomato sauce
4 Tbsp  olive oil
  salt and pepper
 
rinse the lentils and cook them for 45 minutes in 2 quarts of water 
with the onion, celery, and asalt and pepper to taste. remove the 
lentils with a slotted spoon, and strain the broth, discarding the 
celery. slice the onion and saute it in a pot with the oil and the 
garlic for 3 minutes, then add the tomato sauce and cook 2 minutes 
more. add the lentils and the spinach, and then the lentil broth. when 
the soup comes to a boil add the rice and cook, stirring occasionally,
