Best of all, this stew from Food Network Magazine doesn’t need to time to stew on the stove all day; it's ready in just 40 minutes, making it a weeknight pick.
Whether you make this stew for your Weekender, or you opt for another favorite soup or casserole, treat yourself to something homemade this new year.

This cassoulet, based off a traditional sausage-and-bean stew from France, features my beloved butternut squash. The squash provides the hearty meal loads of nutrients: beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and fiber to name a few. Along with the beans, the chicken sausage packs a protein (and flavor) punch without going overboard on fat.
Serve this African Peanut Stew as a main course or a decadent side. The stew is rich in fiber, protein, vitamins A, B and C and boasts a ton of flavor.
