This simple & hearty one-pot cassoulet is a great twist on a family classic and is a breeze to make. Puy-style lentils work really well with the rich, meaty sausages & red pepper for a satisfying bowlful. Warmed mini wholemeal baguettes will help mop up all the juices! (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details).
