Soft Polenta with Sausage Ragout

Serves 2

1 onion
1 garlic clove
4 salciccia or Italian sausages
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 chicken stock cube
1 tin tomato paste
2 sprigs rosemary
120 g quick cook polenta
75 g smoked cheese
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Finely chop the onion, garlic and rosemary leaves. Remove the skins from the sausages. Dissolve a quarter of the chicken stock cube in 100 ml hot water. Bring a pot with 300 ml water to the boil.

Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Fry the onion for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for a further 1 minute. Add 1 tablespoon tomato paste and fry for 1 minute. Add the sausage meat to the pan, breaking the meat up well with a wooden spoon. Fry for about 3-4 minutes. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, the stock and rosemary to the pan. Bring to the boil and simmer gently, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes until the liquid has partially reduced.

Add the polenta to the pot of boiling water and cook gently, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes. Grate the smoked cheese; add to the polenta along with some salt and pepper.

Season the sausage ragout with salt and pepper. Divide the polenta between 2 plates and spoon over the ragout.
