If you're inclined to make the chicken Parmesan & polenta dish I blogged about yesterday & are left with, well, leftovers, consider making pan fried polenta squares! Mike was not only the brains behind this dish, but also executed the whole meal. He used roasted garlic & mozzarella chicken sausages that we buy at Sam's Club & have only 120 calories per link. After Mike sliced & sauteed the sausages, he simmered them for a bit with the leftover sauce from last night.

Next it was time to make the polenta squares! This part was as easy as pie; he took squared slices of polenta & dropped them into a hot pan that was coated in a thin layer of olive oil until they were golden & crisp. We served the sausage & sauce mixture over the polenta squares & topped it with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Perfect for a speedy, yet tasty Monday night meal!

  1. What a fun idea! I've never cooked with polenta before, so I'm gonna try your Parm dish.

  2. To reiterate, those polenta squares were awesome!!! The cheese in the polenta smelled great as it was being fried (for lack of a better word) in the pan, and the crispy texture on the outside paired with the soft texture inside the polenta was great.
