Recipe Ingredients for Polenta w/Sausage and Veggies

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium eggplant, diced
1 lb zucchini, finely diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 lb Italian sausage
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce, preferably lower-sodium
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
14 ounces polenta, sliced lengthwise into 6 thin slices
1 1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella, divided

Recipe Directions for Polenta w/Sausage and Veggies

  1. Brown Sausage & Set Aside

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
