Sausage and Peppers On Polenta
Sausage and Peppers On Polenta
(Salsiccia e Peperoni su Polenta)
 
 
Ingredients:

Olive oil cooking spray
4 oz Italian sausage (casings removed and crumbled)
1 yellow onion (thinly sliced)
1 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
3 cups marinara sauce
1 pinch red pepper flakes
Ground black pepper
Sea salt
1 cup cornmeal (finely ground)
6 fresh basil leaves (coarsely chopped)

Directions:

In a medium pot, bring 3 cups water to a boil.

Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spay and heat on medium-high.

Add sausage and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.

Transfer to a paper towel-lined bowl.

Return pan to medium-high.

Add onion and peppers and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 4-5 minutes.

Return sausage to pan and stir in marinara sauce.

Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5-6 minutes, until thickened slightly.

Add pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper.

Whisk in cornmeal in boiling water in a slow, thin stream, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until incorporated.

Reduce heat to low and continue to stir polenta for 5 to 8 minutes, until thick. If a thinner consistency is desired, adjust by adding additional hot water, 1/4 cup at a time, to reach the desired consistency.

Season with additional salt and pepper.

Divide polenta among serving plates and top evenly with sausage mixture. Top with basil. Serves 4.

That's it!
