This is one of my family's favorite meals (though we do the sausages straight-up sans tomato sauce). My kids (9 & 6) love polenta! mmm, comfort food.

mmmmmm.....sausage and polenta. nothing beats a super creamy, chicken stocky, parmigiany batch of polenta.

thx so much for your recipe!


love the new design. love!

and i have yet to try polenta at home...


The new look is beautiful. I'm so excited to hear that you will be posting more often on this site.


Hi There,
Fun to find your food blog. I have it on my list of blogs to add to my blogroll.


Polenta is a tough one for me. I've made it twice - once stiffer for fried polenta (which tasted like oil, and not like what I imagined it would), and the other as the soft, creamy stuff. The first couple of spoonfulls I dug - but after that, my mind took over and told me that it was gross.

Actually, seeing it with sausage makes it look mighty appetizing. I bet the sausage will offset the creaminess really nicely.


I just tasted polenta for the first time last Friday night. It looked like yellow Cream of Wheat, and it tasted good.

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
