Oven Roasted Italian Sausages
with White Beans and Tomatoes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut into bite size pieces
2 # Italian sausage
3 pints grape or cherry tomatoes
1 large onion, cut into 1” chunks
4 cloves garlic, sliced
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 bay leaves (thread on a toothpick for easy removal before serving)
Place in a large cast iron skillet or a roasting pan. Roast in oven for about
45 minutes, until sausages are brown and tomatoes have reduced to a sauce.
Drain, reserving ½ cup of liquid
