One of my absolute favorite one-pot meals is french-style cassoulet. It is both rich in texture and satisfying to the palette. The only downside to true french cassoulet is the time needed to create this traditional meal – it can take up to two days to finish!
I don’t have that kind of time and I’m sure you don’t either. For this reason, I parred down a few of the expensive ingredients and snuck in a few additions of my own. My new take on cassoulet will take only three short hours.
