Sausage & Polenta

This italian sausage and polenta is the perfect comfort food for any dinner. With mozzarella cheese and thick slices of polenta, this recipe is our absolute favorite dinner.
This is probably in our top 5 meals for dinner. Literally, it’s so good. When we first made this (it actually came found Food Network Magazine and it was for one of our weekly FN nights where we recreate a new meal from the current issue), I wasn’t sure about the polenta.. To be honest, I never had it before. But once you take your first composed bite, everything works together perfectly.

You get the crispness of the polenta on the outside but the softness in the inside. The Italian sausage mixture is beyond delicious and pairs so well with the polenta rounds. All in all, this is a keeper, trust us! The best part is that this recipe is start to finish about 40 minutes, if less. It’s really easy to put together early and bake off when you are ready for dinner. I’ve even made a double helping before and frozen it. It’s really a fool proof recipe for any sized family!
