What’s a cassoulet?
We’ll admit, it’s not a very talked about dish. A cassoulet is a traditional French, slow-cooked casserole containing meat and beans.
While similar to a casserole, a big difference between the two is the more loose structure of the cassoulet that puts it somewhere in between a stew and a casserole.
However you want to classify it, it definitely falls into the category of delicious! This recipe for an Italian take on the French dish is a great warm-up recipe for the chilly fall and winter months ahead.
This recipe is also a favorite of ours because it’s easy to throw together, consisting of simple ingredients that you may even have sitting in your fridge or pantry. Especially if you’ve recently stocked up on a big old 48-oz jar of Randall Beans Great Northern Beans!
Tomatoes, spinach and beans keep this dish tasting fresh and tossing in some Italian seasonings, garlic and Italian sausage give it a lovely little zip and solidifying the Italian twist.
Why not give it a try this week for family dinner? This is the perfect dish for a quick fall family meal, especially when you don’t have much time for meal prep and cooking. It’s hearty, filling and healthy. Plus, you can always stick the leftovers (if you haven’t licked the pot clean) in the fridge for later.
