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!

This was delicious! Used sundried tomato & garlic polenta and added a can of basil tomato sauce to the sauce.

had a hard time finding polenta, found it in the produce section in 3 flavors-garlic/basil, original, and sundried tomato- went for the garlic basil, so simple!
