Polenta and Sausage




  1. Combine water, cornmeal and salt in microwave-safe casserole; stir well. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; vent one corner. Microwave at full power (100%) for 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully remove plastic wrap. Stir. Cover with paper toweling. Microwave 10 minutes, stirring twice.
  3. Pour into greased 10-inch pie plate; cool. Refrigerate until firm, 1 hour.
  4. Saute sausage, onion and garlic in skillet until sausage is no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook, breaking up tomatoes, for 14 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  5. Heat broiler. Cut polenta into 4 wedges. Place on broiler pan. Broil 1 minute per side or until lightly browned.
  6. Place on serving platter. Pour sauce over and serve.
