  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Heat the oil in a large heavy-based casserole, add the onions, celery, and potatoes, and cook for 5 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add the sausages and bacon and cook for 5 minutes, until starting to brown.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the haricot verts, tomato paste, paprika, thyme, oregano, and pepper. Combine well, then add the wine. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes, then add the stock and 11/4 cups hot water. Bring to a boil, simmer for 10 minutes, then remove from heat.
  3. Mix the bread crumbs with the parsley and cover the top of the dish liberally. Dot with pats of butter, cover, and bake for 11/2 hours. Uncover and cook for another 30 minutes. Serve with a crisp green salad.
