How to Make It

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Arrange the polenta slices to cover the bottom of a 3-quart shallow baking dish, trimming the slices as needed to fit. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cook the sausage in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Remove the sausage from the skillet.  Pour off any fat. Add the zucchini to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until it's tender. Stir in the sauce and heat to a boil. Return the sausage to the skillet. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Spoon the sausage mixture over the polenta. Top with the fontina cheese. Bake for 25 minutes or until hot and the cheese is melted.

    Polenta Sausage Bake

    I made this with sweet Italian turkey sausage and it was very yummy! Will definitely make again. May try with onions and mushrooms to bump up the veggie content.
