Makes: 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup polenta and 1 3/4 cups kale and sausage)

Start with a healthy green like kale to be the cornerstone to a tasty meal of Braised Kale, Sausage, and Creamy Polenta. Luscious mascarpone cheese makes the polenta super creamy--and has fewer calories than butter!

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook sausages over medium heat until browned (about 10 minutes).

Step 2

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add polenta. Cook on low, stirring, until thick (about 5 minutes). Stir in cheese, paprika, and pepper. Season with salt.

Step 3

Add the kale to the sausage. Cook until hot (2-3 minutes). Serve over the creamy polenta.
