Dijon Lentil and Sausage Casserole
Ingredients
  • 1 14 1/2 ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1  cup  water
  • 8  ounces  fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 2- to 3-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 2  medium  parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3  medium  shallots, halved, or 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 8  ounces  smoked cooked turkey sausage, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4  cups  red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3  cup  dry white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2  tablespoons  Dijon-style mustard
  • 2  teaspoons  snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 4  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2  cups  coarse soft whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil
  • 1/4  cup  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 2  teaspoons  finely shredded lemon peel
  •  Lemon slices, halved, and/or Italian (flat-leaf) parsley sprigs (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large saucepan combine broth and the water. Bring to boiling. Add green beans, parsnips, and shallots. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or just until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat. Stir in sausage and lentils. In a small bowl combine wine, mustard, thyme, and half of the minced garlic; stir into sausage mixture.

2. Transfer sausage mixture to a 2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, for 25 to 30 minutes or just until lentils are tender.

3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl toss together bread crumbs and oil. Sprinkle over sausage mixture. Bake, uncovered, about 10 minutes more or until mixture is heated through and crumbs are lightly browned.

4. In a small bowl combine snipped parsley, lemon peel, and the remaining garlic. Sprinkle over casserole before serving. If desired, garnish with lemon slices and/or parsley sprigs.
