Ingredients

1 cup  red lentils, dried
1 each  bay leaves
3 tbsp  olive oil
1 each  medium garlic cloves
1 each  large red bell peppers
1 tbsp  paprika
1 1/2 lb  Bread, sourdough, deli
0 1/2 cup  Cheese, romano, sharp, grated
Directions
  1. Begin by rinsing the lentils and place them in a large saucepan. Cover with plenty of water, add the bay leaf, and then bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat, and them continue to simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the lentils are very soft, skimming off any foam as they cook. Drain and remove the bay leaf.
  3. Next, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and saute the garlic and pepper until soft, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the paprika, remove from the heat, and mix in the lentils.
  5. To prepare the Bruschetta, spread the lentils onto slices of toasted sourdough and sprinkle with the cheese. Place under broiler until the cheese has melted, and serve immediately.
