    Cook the sausages
    In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the sausages* and cook, partially covered, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate, leaving any fond (or browned bits) in the pot. Set aside in a warm spot.

    Mise en place
    While the sausage cooks, drain and rinse the lentils; using a potato masher (or a fork), mash ½ the lentils. Thinly slice the celery crosswise. Core and small dice the bell pepper. Peel, halve and small dice the onion. Mince the garlic. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems.

    In the reserved pot of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the celery and peppers. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, until beginning to soften; season with the spice blend and S&P. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until dark red.

Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, until thickened; season with S&P to taste.
