Recipe by Classico
"A trio of Italian cheeses--ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan--gives this hearty casserole recipe a cheesey gooeyness that balances the gutsy, sausage sauce."

This dish is easy to make and I made it gluten free! So filling! Family loves it even my picky eaters!
Delicious! If you love polenta you will love this! Only addition was one sweet red pepper chopped and added with other vegetables. Easy easy! Hubby had two helpings!
We like polenta and have tried it in numerous ways but this is by far the best. It just happened to have the exact amount of instant polenta in the pantry so I decided to make it. I used 1lb of lean turkey sweet Italian sausage and omitted the mushrooms. My kids 6 & 10 disliked polenta but tonight, they cleaned out their plates.
I loved the polenta flavor. I didn't use jarred sauce but jnstead made my own. I think the sausage/sauce mix overpowered the lovely polenta flavor. I will make the polenta part of this recipe again but perhaps make a milder accompaniment.
I tried this recipe tonight and it turned out great. I did add romano cheese to the polenta and extra virgin olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper while it was on the stove. I didn't bake it, I browned sausage in a frying pan and added a jar of meat sauce over it, and simmered while "jazzing up" the polenta with the spices mentioned above, after it was done cooking...then just spooned the polenta into a bowl and toppped it with the sausage and sauce, sprinkled grated romano and fresh parsley and served it to my husband. He loved it!! He said it was AS GOOD AS THE POLENTA WE GET AT THE ITALIAN FESTIVALS IN THE SUMMERTIME. Definately saved this one in the recipe box.
Well, my son and I thought this was just okay, but my husband was crazy about it. He loved the polenta's slightly crispy outside and flavorful inside with the sausage mixture underneath.
This is so good you'll want to slap someone. I added fennel seed to the sauce, but followed the recipe exactly for everything else. I can't wait to eat this again, and it has good presentation when you serve it.
