Yummy! I don't eat red meat so instead I used turkey bacon, swapped out turkey andouille sausage and left out the pork... Delish! Definitely needs to simmer all that time to let the flavors meld.

This was a huge hit at our weekly football gathering. I did adjust the recipe a bit by substituting the diced tomatoes with diced tomatoes with green chili peppers, and went for regular smoked sausage rather than the low fat version. The chili peppers gave it a bit of a kick. Doubled the recipe for our crowd and served it with french bread. Definitely a keeper!

Oh my gosh! There is so much flavor in this dish and it is so filling I didn't have room for the garlic bread I made to go along with it. I used three slices of thick cut bacon, doubled the thyme and rosemary because I used fresh herbs, added an extra sprinkle of salt and pepper, and subbed chicken breast for the pork. We are definitely making this again! It is perfect for a cold evening. :)

Hearty, filling and full of flavor. I made the recipe exactly as written and it was delicious!

One of our favorite slow cooker recipes!!! Fully of flavor and filling. Served with a salad and crusty bread.

This is a really tasty winter recipe. It is very filling and comforting. I forgot to add the garlic but it was still delicious. I substituted cannellini beans for the Great Northern Bean as they didn't have any at my local supermarket. I also added a shallot to the onion mixture. I substituted smoked full-fat andouille pork sausage and used fresh rosemary and thyme (doubling the amount). I think this would have been tasty if white wine was added to the onion mixture after it was sauteed, prior to adding the tomatoes (it would have given it a little more depth I think). I omitted the cheese and parsley (which I think were unnecessary). As with most Cooking Light recipes, additional salt is needed.

This was very, very good. It was a bit too thick, though. It might be because I mashed the beans too much. Next time I won't mash them much, or maybe I won't mash them at all.

YUMMY!! Starting checking it after 3.5 hours, was done in 4. Didn't use the cheese or parsley at the end either

Delicious as is- I used full-fat sausage and fresh herbs since I had them. Very hearty, full of meat, and I cook for a meat-lover! Next time I'll omit the pork- the sausage and the bacon are enough. Very flavorful.
