FRENCH CASSOULET WITH WHITE BEANS AND SAUSAGE

Introduction

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
    14-16 oz. turkey sausage
    1 yellow onion, diced
    1 tsp. minced garlic, (about 2 cloves)
    1/2 tsp. dried oregano
    1/2 tsp. dried basil

    15 oz. diced tomatoes, with their liquid
    30 oz. canned cannellini or white kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. (If you are making the spaetzle, start it now.) In a large oven-safe Dutch oven or deep skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat. Add the sausage (if you are using real sausage, remove it from its casing), breaking it up with a spatula, and the onions, garlic, oregano and basil. Cook the sausage and onions for about 6-8 minutes, until the sausage is browned, stirring frequently.

Add the tomatoes and beans to the sausage mixture, and bring it to a low boil. Simmer it for 3 - 5 minutes, then transfer it to the oven. Bake the stew for 10 minutes, uncovered. Remove it from the oven and serve it immediately, or refrigerate it for up to 3 days.

Slow Cooker Directions: (This makes more of a chili than a casserole, but it's still delicious.) Brown the sausage, onion, garlic, oregano and basil in the oil (you won't need the oil if using real sausage) and transfer to a slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, 1 lb. dried cannellini or other white beans, and 8 cups water. Cook it on High for 6 hours or on Low for 10 hours. Skip the bread crumbs.
