This was amazing! I feel guilty to review it though because I know it was posted by the makers of that brand sausage but I didn't use that, I actually used kielbasa because it's what I had. I never had polenta so I made my own with sundried tomatoes and garlic added - then I broiled it brushed with olive oil to be crisp. Everything else was per the recipe and the flavors were amazing. My son didn't care for the polenta but my fussy husband didn't mind it because the flavor of the sausage & veggie part was so delicious. Oh ya, I did use a zucchini but I also added a summer squash as well. And I put the rest of the sundried tomatoes in with the sausage & vegetables. Definitely making this again!!


Very tasty - didn't have zucchini so used more mushrooms and onion. Sauted polenta in a little olive oil which made it crispy on the outside, creamy inside. Next time will put in sausage together with the onions and peppers and leave out the oil.


excellent, tasty, colorful, and healthy! I grilled the veggies (used a green and red bell pepper instead of yellow) in a little oil, then combined with the grilled and sliced sausage adding the seasoning and vinegar (which I don't normally like but thought it was excellent on this recipe. I never measure so I probably used a light hand when pouring, maybe it wasn't 2 TBLs) I also grilled the polenta slices.
