Easy French Cassoulet With Wine, Beans, Sausage, Ham and Herbs

“This cassoulet is a wonderful and EASY one-pan variation of the French classic! Great, warming comfort food that takes the chill off in the colder months. Very hearty and welcoming to come home to after a winter's walk or some sledding fun! Serve the steaming cassoulet in bowls accompanied with a baguette or corn bread, a tossed salad, and a nice glass of cider or wine. ENJOY! Notes: Chopped kielbasa will work in place of the bulk pork sausage, and ground allspice in place of the cloves. Also dry white vermouth in place of dry white wine, is good. Can be baked in a 2-quart size casserole dish (deep rather than shallow), if you do not have a Dutch oven.”
