Polenta Pie

Annie had such a delicious success with the Roasted Leg of Lamb recipe from “Cooking In Style the Costco Way” that she picked up another Costco cookbook, “Easy Cooking the Costco Way”. In it, she found a recipe for polenta pie that she really wanted to try.

Normally, we buy polenta in a thick, sausage-like tube from Trader Joe’s. We cut the tube up into rounds and then pan fry or grill them. The polenta cakes then serve as the base for any number of different main dishes.

This recipe calls for making polenta from ground cornmeal and cheddar, then pouring it into a pie tin and forming a crust. The filling consists of bulk Italian sausage, sauteed with onions, garlic, salt and sun-dried tomatoes. (Of course, we couldn’t use dried tomatoes when we’ve got great, homegrown tomatoes straight from the garden!).

Thaw a box of frozen, chopped spinach and squeeze the spinach dry. Then layer the spinach on top of the polenta. Add the sauteed sausage and onion filling. Finally, top with shredded mozzarella cheeze and bake in a 400*F oven for 15-20 minutes.

It is as delicious as it looks!

Aloha, Nate
