Polenta and Sausage

I’ve been wanting to try out polenta and I found the perfect recipe.

Polenta with Italian Sausage

4 cups water, divided

1 cup cornmeal

1tsp salt

1lb Italian sausage links

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 can (14-1/2oz) Italian stewed tomatoes

2TB minced frash parsely

1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Combine 1 cup water and cornmeal in a small bowl. Bring remaining water and salt to a boil. Slowly stir in cornmeal mixture. Reduce heat; cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage and garlic over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Cool slightly. Cut sausage into 1-in. pieces; return to skillet. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and parsley; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat.

Spread half of the cornmeal mixture in a serving dish; top with half of the sausage mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. The boys started eating and seemed to enjoy it. Then they started telling me the sausage was too spicey and was burning their tongues. So next time I’m thinking I’ll just use ground pork in the sauce. I need to find some other things to do with polenta – suggestions?

Just Grillin’

Grilled out last night. I think that is going to be the easiest dinner for me to make to include everyone. My husband and I had italian sausage. He put some chicken on for the boys. He then grilled some zucchini with red and yellow peppers. We added a little italian dressing to the veggies. Everyone ate and mommy was so happy!

Tonight might be a little tougher. Tacos or a pasta dish? Including Gage in one of these meals is going to be hard. We’ll see what the day brings and how much time and effort I’m going to have once dinner gets here.
