    The Wallaces's Note:

    Use whatever flavor of polenta you like, the recipe recommends garlic-flavored but we've also used sun-dried tomato basil with great results. Italian sausage can be whatever spiciness you like. We've also used button mushrooms instead of cremini before.

    1. 1

      Remove sausage from skillet and discard drippings except 1 tablespoons.
    4. 4
      Saute onion and garlic in reserved sausage drippings until onion is soft. Add mushrooms and zucchini, stir frequently until all liquid evaporates. Stir in tomatoes, herbs, and red pepper flakes. Return sausage to skillet and simmer for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Spread an even scant amount of sauce (about 2/3 cup) on bottom of an 11x7 inch baking pan. Add a single layer of sliced polenta rounds. Layer with 2 cups of sausage sauce and 3/4 cup of Provolone.
    6. 6
      Finish with an additional layer of polenta rounds, all the sausage sauce, and all the Provolone. Sprinkle Parmesan on top.

      We really enjoyed the mix of flavours in this dish. It's very healthy too for the diet-conscious! I used fresh basil and would do so again. Thanks for another lovely recipe!
