This recipe is a combination of the best bits of a few cassoulet recipes I've tried before. The simple combination of flavors in this dish becomes positively transcendent after a day of simmering. Serve this super-easy dish whenever true comfort food is called for!

Directions

  1. Saute sausage in large skillet over medium heat till browned. Remove with slotted spoon.
  2. Add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic to sausage drippings and saute till onions turn translucent, about 5 minutes, adding olive oil if needed to prevent sticking. Add thyme, rosemary, and sage and saute till fragrant, a minute or two.
  3. Combine onion mixture, sausage, beans, tomatoes, and stock in 3.5 quart (or larger) slow cooker. Cover and cook 8 hours on LOW.
  4. Just before serving, combine melted butter, parmesan, and bread crumbs, stirring till well coated. Sprinkle crumb mixture over each serving.
