For the cotechino with lentils water cotechino sausage overnight. Then change the water (the sausage must be abundantly covered with it), bring to a boil and simmer gently for 2 1/2 hours. (Be careful not to damage the skin in any way, or it will crack). Meanwhile, finely chop the carrot, onion and celery and sauté in hot oil. Drain the pre-cooked lentils, rinse them briefly with cold water and add them to the fried vegetables in the pan.

Mix tomato paste with a little soup and add as well. Add wine, bay leaf and season with salt and pepper. Simmer gently for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot with the cotechino from the heat and let the sausage simmer off the heat for another 15 minutes.

Arrange the lentils on a warmed platter. Carefully lift the sausage out of the broth, cut it into 1 cm thick slices and spread them over the lentils.
