    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I recommend you make this cassoulet (not the topping) a day or a night before, the flavors strongly intensify when left in the fridge overnight, you can just warm on top of the stove, prepare and top with the bread topping, then bake.. Although I have listed canellini beans in the ingredients, you can use any beans that you like, use a dry smoked kielbasa sausage for this, this is an old-fashioned hearty dish with TONS of flavor!
