Combine chicken stock, cream and 1 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large saucepan; cover and bring to the boil. Whisk in polenta. Reduce heat to low; cook, whisking often, until polenta is soft, about 15 minutes.
Heat olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Add sausage links; cook, turning often, until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Stir remaining 1 teaspoon salt, red pepper, yellow pepper, red onion and oregano into the pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until onion has softened, about 6 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; pour in white wine. Stir in pasta sauce.
Slice sausages and return to the pan. Cook, covered, until cooked through, about 3 minutes.
Stir 2/3 of the Parmesan cheese and 60g butter into polenta until melted. Season with black pepper. Divide polenta among 4 serving plates. Top with sausage and pepper mixture. Garnish with remaining Parmesan cheese and basil.
