French Country Casserole Recipe

French Country Casserole Recipe

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
