Another yummy lentil stew

I have a great lentil stew I think I am going to make if I can't sleep:
2 c. Brown lentils
3 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery
4 medium red potatos
1 broccoli crown, chopped
1 can corn
1/2 lb. fresh green beans
1 medium zuccini squash, sliced
1 medium yellow squash, sliced
2 c. vegetable broth (last time i used the no-chicken broth and it was even more yummy)
2 bay leaves
3 cloves garlic, minced

All I do is sautee the garlic in a little olive oil, then I just throw all the veggies in the pot with the broth and let it all simmer about 45 minutes. It does get rather mushy but I like it that way. Very soothing in cool weather and when you are sickly. It does make a LOT but I like to make a batch up so i can eat off it all week long.

Now for some new ideas from ya'll - anything you think I could add to this to vary it a bit? I was thinking about adding pasta or some beans but i don't know. I also don't currently have any bay leaves. Anything I could throw in there spice wise to give it some flavor?
Yum stew.
