Ingredients

  • 1
    large baking potato, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1
    large dark-orange sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2
    medium carrots, sliced
  • 1
    medium parsnip, sliced
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped
  • 1
    lb. smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1
    (14 1/2-oz.) can ready-to-serve chicken broth
  • 1
    (14.5-oz.) can chunky tomatoes with garlic and Italian herbs, undrained
  • 2
    teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    In 3 1/2 to 4-quart Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker, combine all ingredients except parsley; mix well.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on low setting for 7 to 9 hours.
  • 3
    Just before serving, stir in parsley.

  • There are two varieties of sweet potatoes. One type has pale yellow flesh with a crumbly dry texture similar to that of a white potato. The other type has darker orange flesh that is sweet and moist. For the prettiest color and richest flavor, use an orange-fleshed sweet potato.
  • To make a vegetarian casserole, omit the sausage and use vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth.
  • For a chill-chasing menu, serve this casserole with warm biscuits and honey, plus mugs of hot orange-spice tea.
