(recipe, Carrie Floyd)

Introduction

This is a heartwarming dish that is fairly easy to throw together, especially if you already have some tomato sauce stowed in the fridge or freezer. For a complete meal, serve with steamed broccoli or a simple green salad.

Ingredients

  1. Easy Polenta
  2. 4 Italian sausages (pork or chicken)
  3. 2 cups Tomato Sauce with Roasted Vegetables or Winter Tomato Sauce
  4. Fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped (optional)

Steps

  1. Prepare the polenta and keep warm.
  2. In a cast-iron or heavy skillet, brown the sausages. (If using pork sausages, prick the casings to allow the fat to seep out; if using chicken sausages, first coat the pan with a little olive oil.) While the sausages cook, warm up the tomato sauce.
  3. To serve, scoop a ladleful of polenta onto each plate and top with a cooked sausage and a big spoonful of tomato sauce. Garnish each plate with chopped parsley, if desired.
