Oven Cassoulet

This tasty casserole can be put together quickly and is so warm and satisfying on a wintry night. We enjoy it with a lettuce salad or cooked vegetables. -Diane Molberg of Emerald Park, Saskatchewan

    This recipe is outstanding...we've made it many times and never have any leftovers. I double the amount of sausage and use only one can of beans, and I omit the celery, but otherwise I keep everything else the same. I've used chicken-apple sausage, German sausage, and kielbasa interchangeably; all have been very good in this dish.
