I used mild Italian turkey sausage and added zuchini for some extra vegetables. I have also served it over couscous instead of polenta. Delicious either way!

Served the easy/yummy sauce over creamy polenta instead since I couldn't find a tube of it... Basically the same taste, just in a different presentation... I loved this meal!
