Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    * Parmesan Cheese, grated, 1 tbsp
    * Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp
    * Pepper, red chili flakes, 0.25 tsp or to taste
    * Salt, 0.25 tsp
    * Garlic, 2 cloves - minced
    * Onions, raw, 100 grams - sliced
    * Peppers, sweet, red, raw, sliced, 100 grams - sliced
    * Pacific Natural Foods Organic Crushed Tomatoes, 6 serving
    * Bertolli EVOO (1 tbsp), 3 serving
    * Crystal Farms Mozzarella, 100 grams
    * Food Merchant's Brand Polenta Traditional Italian, 500 gram(s)
    * Jennie-O Italian Turkey Sausage, 218 gram(s)

Directions

1 Preheat oven broiler on high. Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a 2-3 qt saucepan on medium heat. Add tomatoes and oregano, simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes.

2 While the tomatoes are cooking, in a large frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Cover the pan, lower the heat to medium, and cook until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage, stirring and breaking it into small pieces as it cooks, about 5 minutes. Cover the pan and cook until vegetables are tender and the sausage is cooked through, about 5-8 more minutes. Add the tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.

3 While the sauce is cooking, coat the bottom of a 9X9-inch baking pan with a 1/2 Tbsp oil. Add the cooked polenta (or slices) to the pan. Coat the top of the polenta with the remaining 1/2 Tbsp oil. Broil the polenta about 4 inches from the heating element until golden brown and crispy, about 10-15 minutes.

4 Pour sauce over broiled polenta, then arrange Mozzarella slices over the top and return the casserole to the broiler. Broil until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.

  • Great idea to broil the polenta before adding the sauce. I've always just layered and baked but this turns out a lot better. - 4/8/11
