About this recipe:Shop bought polenta with an easy sauce. We prefer a spicy Italian sausage to give it some more kick, but you can use any sausage. This will serve 4 to 6 people.

Preheat the oven's grill and set the oven rack about 15cm from the heat source.
Line a baking tray with parchment, or lightly coat in olive oil. Arrange the polenta slices on the sheet and brush lightly with olive oil. Grill until lightly browned, about 5 minutes; turn and grill other side for 5 minutes. Keep warm.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the sausage, breaking it up as it browns. When sausage has lost any pink colour, add the onion, red pepper, mushrooms, courgette and Italian herbs. Cook until vegetables are crisp tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the pasta sauce and cook until heated through and just starting to simmer.
To serve, spoon the sauce on slices of polenta. Top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
didn't use italian sausage, just regular sausage and added chilli flakes. Was a really filling and delicious dish and we liked using polenta this way. i think it all comes down to the pasta sauce brand you use - choose a good one for best reults! could also add some fresh basil, would be v. nice! - 29 Oct 2012
