Traditionally cooked for hours, this version of the rustic French dish offers the same homey taste in less time. It’s easy on the wallet, too. —Virginia Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2012

This smelled amazing while it was cooking. I don't have a Dutch oven, so I started the recipe in a frying pan and finished it off in a casserole dish.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 9, 2011

I did not care for this. I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like, it's the first time I made/ate cassoulet and it may be I just don't like cassoulet, and nothing to do with this recipe. The only change I made was to double the bacon, since I didn't have any kielbasa.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2010

I've always loved cassoulet, and this recipe has become one of my new stand-bys. I have made it at least four times since it was published in the magazine. I like the hearty simplicity and the balanced savory flavor. Rosemary and thyme are two of my favorite herbs. Combine with garlic and one doesn't need much more in the way of seasoning for a cozy dish like this.
