In this Italian family-style dish, the polenta is topped with a meaty stew and eaten from a wooden cutting board with everyone gathered around it. Each person eats from the section in front of him or her and works towards the centre where the whole sausage is placed.
Making the polenta requires patience, time and continuous stirring otherwise you will have lumps. If you use sausages that aren't spicy, you can add some more red chilli flakes. This is a great dish for a large informal dinner party with family and friends.
