    1. 1
      Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add in olive oil.
    2. 2
      Add in sausage, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon; cook until browned, 4-5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add in the red onion, fennel, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes or until the vegetables wilt and the onions become translucent.
    4. 4
      While the vegetables are cooking, start the polenta: In a saucepan, combine 2 ½ cups chicken broth and milk; season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Place over med-high heat and bring to a simmer.
    6. 6
      Back to the vegetables: once the vegetables have wilted, add in the white wine and remaining 1 ½ cups chicken broth to the skillet; increase heat to high and bring up to a simmer.
    7. 7
      Cook about 4-5 minutes, to reduce liquids by half; stir in the chopped parsley.
    8. 8
      To the simmering chicken stock/milk, add in the polenta; whisk constantly until the cornmeal masses together.
    9. 9
      Add in the butter and grated cheese; stir to combine (if polenta becomes too thick, add more broth or milk).
    10. 10
      Serve polenta in a shallow bowl; top with a helping of sausage and fennel ragout; garnish with more Parmigiano-Reggiano.
