The traditional French dish takes days to prepare and contains a generous
portion of high-fat meats. By using sausage only, preparation time, fat and
calories are all cut down without sacrificing flavour.

In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausage, onions,
garlic, carrots, celery, thyme, pepper and cloves, stirring, for about 5
minutes or until onions are softened. Add tomatoes, breaking up with fork.
Add chicken stock and bay leaf; bring to boil. Add beans; reduce heat and
simmer for about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Discard bay leaf.

[Can be prepared to this point, cooled, covered and refrigerated for up to
1 day. Or freeze for up to 1 week; thaw in refrigerator for up to 36 hours.
Add 45 minutes to 1 hour to baking time.]

Topping: In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic; cook for
about 2 minutes or until softened. Stir in bread crumbs and chopped
parsley; sprinkle over cassoulet. Bake in 350F 180C oven for about 30
minutes or until crusty and golden on top, bubbly and heated through.
