1 In a large pot, combine the lentils, onions, carrots, potato, and fennel. Add cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring the liquid to a simmer and cook over low heat 30 minutes.
2 Stir in the tomatoes and olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the lentils are tender, about 20 minutes more. Add a little water as needed so that the lentils are just covered with the liquid.
3 Stir in the pasta and cook until the pasta is tender, 15 minutes more. Taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish with the chopped fennel tops, if available. Serve hot or warm, with a drizzle of extravirgin olive oil.
