How to prepare this recipe:

For food safety, cook to 165° F.

  1. Preheat a non-stick or lightly oiled skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add sausages. Turn sausages frequently with tongs to brown all sides. After browning (5-7 minutes) reduce heat to medium, add 1/2–2/3 cup water, cover, turn sausages occasionally, and cook to 165°F. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  3. Add peppers and onion to skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables start to brown.
  4. Add Italian seasoning and garlic; cook 2 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes, tomato paste and chili flakes. Simmer about 10 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  6. In large saucepan over medium heat, bring polenta, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil, stirring constantly until polenta thickens.
  7. Cook about 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
  8. Transfer polenta to serving bowl or individual bowls, top with pepper sauce and sausages.
  9. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and/or chopped parsley, if desired.
