Not ever having made or eaten cassoulet, I was anxious to try this recipe. We really enjoyed the combination of flavors. I used Johnsonville Smoked Turkey sausage and leftover (cooked) pork chops. I used Frank's Red Hot Pepper Sauce for the simmering, but also served additional Frank's at the table so people could adjust the heat to their liking.
