  • 3 pounds boneless pork loin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 cup (1/4-inch) sliced carrot
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup (1/4-inch-thick) red bell pepper rings
  • 1 1/2 cups (1-inch) cubed French bread
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Preparation

  1. Sort and wash beans, and place in a large Dutch oven. Cover with water to 2 inches above beans; bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 1 hour. Drain; return beans to pan. Cover beans with water, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 300°.
  3. Add bacon to pan; cook over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon. Increase heat to medium-high. Add pork to drippings in pan; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Remove pork with a slotted spoon. Add the kielbasa; cook for 5 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Remove kielbasa with a slotted spoon. Add onion, celery, carrot, garlic, and thyme; saute 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in 1/4 cup water, tomato paste, broth, and tomatoes.
  4. Return beans, bacon, pork, and kielbasa to pan; bring to a boil. Cover and bake at 300° for 1 hour. Remove 1 cup of beans and vegetables with a slotted spoon. Place in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Return to pan. Stir in the wine, salt, and black pepper. Arrange the bell pepper rings evenly over top.
  5. Place the bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1 1/2 cups. Combine with cheese. Sprinkle cassoulet with the breadcrumb mixture. Return the cassoulet to the oven, and bake, uncovered, an additional 45 minutes.
