Quick Cassoulet Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 8)

Have made this twice. Good basic time-saver recipe, but looked too dry and tasted bland, so added 1 can chicken broth, 1/2 cup dry red wine, and 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and simmered it about 2 hours. Mashed the beans a bit before serving to thicken. Turned out tasty. We like a little more "zip" so 2nd time added same extras, but used hot links smoked sausage and omitted the red pepper flakes. Even better!!

Not great, and not very appetizing in appearance. Although it was easy, it filled the void, and one is likely to have these ingredients in their pantry; I think I would try to find another recipe to fill this criteria.

This recipe was ok, but not great. I didn't think the simmering time of 10 minutes was enough for the flavors to meld, so I let it simmer for about 30 minutes on a low heat. It was also a bit dry, so I added water. For others interested in trying this recipe, I would recommend using the juice in the canned tomatoes (not draining it). Overall, I probably wouldn't make this recipe again.

Very, very good, quick and easy! I didn't toss all of the juices from the beans and tomatoes, though. Save some of the juice and add it back while simmering - this keeps the dish from becoming too dry.

This was quite tasty, although I would really call it a faux cassoulet. It's certainly a healthy alternative and quick and easy. I used lean turkey smoked sausage and added about a half teaspoon of herbs de provence. You also might need to add a little liquid with the beans and tomatoes if you use the turkey sausage. A great family friendly meal!

Hi there! I submitted this recipe...it SHOULD have read that the can of tomatoes was UNDRAINED. You will need the extra moisture for the recipe to turn out properly. Sorry to those who followed the original inaccurate directions.
