This was a tasty, easy recipe. Good for a weeknight dinner. I used sweet Italian turkey sausage and used the whole package. 4 oz didn't seem like enough for a filling meal. I also used shredded mozzarella since I had some on hand.

I doubled the recipe to use the whole log of polenta, but did not double the sausage.  This was so easy and so tasty!!  I can't wait until breakfast tomorrow to have it again, with an egg.
