Don't overlook the wonderful change of pace that polenta makes from pasta or rice. This dish is sure to become a frequently requested one.

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $15.60

  • 24 ounces prepared polenta, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound sweet or hot Italian pork sausage, casing removed
  • 1 large zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce or Roasted Garlic & Herb Italian Sauce
  • 6 ounces shredded fontina cheese or mozzarella cheese (about 1 1/2 cups)

Instructions

  • Step 1

    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.

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    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.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 25 minutes or until hot and the cheese is melted.

    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.
