"This was delicious, though I only made the chicken sausage mixture, not the polenta. I didn't have any on hand so I ended up making baked garlic sweet potatoes as a side dish. I used a tablespoon of oil rather than a teaspoon, however--it just didn't look like enough to saut? all those peppers and onions. Loved it though, and will definitely try with polenta in the future."
