Description

A creamy and hearty dinner that comes together simultaneously. Comfort food in about half an hour!

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Butternut Squash, Peeled And Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 whole Links Of Your Favorite Sausage (I Used Turkey)
  • 1 whole Onion, Peeled And Sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 1 cup Cornmeal
  • 4-½ cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Start by placing the squash pieces in a microwave safe bowl. Heat them in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes or until they are tender. Set aside.

Add half of the olive oil to a large skillet or cast iron pan and, on medium high heat, cook the sausage for about 10 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Remove the sausage from the pan, add the remaining olive oil along with the onions. Cook on medium high heat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes or until the onions are soft and lightly caramelized. Add the garlic, squash and thyme to the pan and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the squash is also lightly caramelized. Slice the sausage and return it to the pan to warm up. Season to taste.

While the onions are cooking, add the cornmeal and water to a pot and cook on medium low heat, whisking frequently for about 15 minutes or until it has reached the consistency you like. Stir in the butter and season with salt.

Spoon the polenta into serving bowls and top with the sausage, onion and squash mixture.
