Thursday, December 10, 2009 A Different Polenta for Dinner: Sausage and Tomato Polenta

Sausage and Tomato Polenta
Submitted by a reader - sounds like a delicious change to 'regular' polenta. Yum!

2 hot Italian sausages
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 plum tomatoes
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon flour
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Remove sausage casings and crumble sausage. Sautee the onion in the olive oil in a heavy saucepan until tender. Add the sausage. Cook for 10 minutes or until the sausage is brown, stirring constantly.

Add the plum tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the milk, flour, sugar and salt. Cook until heated through; reduce heat to simmer.

Add the cornmeal in a fine stream, whisking constantly until mixed.

Simmer for 10 minutes or until the mixture has thickened and the edge pulls from the side of the saucepan, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Stir in the cheese. Remove from heat immediately. Spoon into individual bowls. The polenta will become firm after cooling. Leftovers may be sliced and reheated in a greased skillet.

Serves 4
