Place lentils in a pot and cover with stock and at least 1 inch of water, then add bay leaves. Bring the lentils to a boil, reduce heat a bit and cook at a low boil, about 40 minutes until tender. Drain and remove bay leaf. Before lentils finish cooking place a skillet on stove and add Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons to the pan, and heat over medium-high heat. Add carrot, celery, onions, and season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes then add garlic and cook a couple of minutes more. Stir in tomatoes, season with cloves, cinnamon and red pepper flakes. Add white wine to Vegetables, stir in parsley and lentils. Then adjust the salt and pepper if needed. Preparing the sausage I coat the casing in a bit of Olive Oil and set the sausage up on top of a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 400 ˚F and roast sausage 20-25 minutes until firm and cooked through. Serve lentils in bowls topped with sausage.
