  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups  chopped onions

Repeat with remaining pork. Add onions to Dutch oven and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until tender, 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 30 seconds. Return pork to Dutch oven and add sausage, beans, broth, water, bay leaf, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Bring to boil. Cover and transfer to oven.

3. Bake 1 hour. Combine wine and tomato paste and stir into pot. Bake, covered, 1 hour more. Sprinkle with parsley before serving. Makes 14 (1-cup) servings.
