This delicious dish is great for busy nights when you don't have much time to devote to dinner. It's a quick-to-fix version of a traditional French cassoulet that was an instant hit with my husband, who enjoys smoked sausage. Just mix everything together and bake. The heavenly aroma will draw your family to the table. Kim Lowe, Coralville, Iowa

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2013

My husband and I really liked it, but the kids not so much. It's one I may make again in the future and freeze for lunches rather than offer as supper.

This was really delicious. I did make a few changes. I didn't use the kidney beans at all as no one in our house likes them, sticking only with one can of black beans, one can of northern beans. Secondly, I used both red wine and beef stock in 3/4 c. measurements each. I also added an additional 1/2 pound of the sausage because my family's crazy for it. I added an extra carrot too. Honesty, it was delicious and warming and the sauce was rich and flavorful. My hubby loved it!

Well if it was up to me I would have only gave it 2 stars because I did not like it at all but my husband loved it. I will not be making it again though.

I have made this recipe several times over the years. Its great for a potluck or dinner on a chilly fall or winter night served with a crusty bread. I always put in my crock pot and let cook on low, It turns out great every time.

Excellent flavor! I vary the vegetables substituting rutabega or butternut squash for carrots. Sometimes I use all three. Leftovers are the best!
