This meal is simple, hearty, cheap, and absolutely delicious (makes the house smell great, too). You need:
1 - 2 lbs Italian sausage links, cut in half
2  cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
2 cans (15.5 oz)  white beans- Great Northern or Cannelini. Drain beans but reserve 1/2 cup of liquid.
2 onions, quartered
3 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp thyme
2 bay leaves
1 tsp black pepper
oven to 425 degrees
