    squarehopper's Note:

    A wonderfully delicious quick to put together recipe! Thanks to Reader's Digest, it made my family happy. They couldn't wait to dig in as the enticing aroma floated throughout our home as the meal cooked. I made it spicier though by changing the Italian sausage to hot and substituting the black pepper with homemade pepper sauce though you could add or substitute with a hot pepper or 2. The person who reviewed this recipe had a bad experience. From what she stated, it seems that the dish was undercooked. If you never had polenta before, when it is done it is a bread like texture - similar to Mexican corn meal tamales. If it is gruel like, then it still needs to cook for more time.

      It never had the consistancy of the "corn meal in tamales" even after I cooked it for 14 hours. I never got to eat it, only taste it. Maybe changing the cook time, amount of liquid, or heat setting would help the dish.

      I would probably not make this again - we did not care for it. Sorry.

      I am new to this site and I was thinking that maybe Sky Hostess's crock pot is different. I haven't made this(yet)but I know my crock cooks fast and maybe her's cooks slow. I love crock pots. Maybe try again? I'll post a review when I try it.
