Quick Sausage Cassoulet

An easy and satisfying version of a traditional French casserole.

Prep: 10 min - Bake: 35 min

2 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter
2 medium (1/2 cup) carrots, chopped
1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans great Northern or navy beans, rinsed, drained
1/4 pound kielbasa, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 2-quart round casserole with no stick
cooking spray.

Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add carrots, onion
and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally,
until onions are softened (3 to 5 minutes).

Combine onion mixture, beans, kielbasa, tomato sauce and thyme
in prepared casserole. Cover; bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until
bubbly and carrots are crisply tender. Sprinkle with parsley.

TIP: To add a special touch to this dish, sprinkle a bread
crumb topping over the casserole. To prepare the topping, combine
1 tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter, 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs,
2 tablespoons chopped parsley and 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
in a 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring
constantly, until bread crumbs are golden brown (3 to 5 minutes).
Sprinkle crumb topping over bean mixture. Bake as directed above.
