Good Recipe
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1 lb raw chicken sausage-hot or mild, I used mild, casings removed
1 roll style polenta-you can find this in the Italian food section of most supermarkets
4 Roma tomatoes
2 Tbs. Parmesan/Romano grated cheese blend
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Heat a large non-stick skillet and spray with olive oil from an oil mister or use cooking spray. Add sausage and cook, breaking up the sausage with a spatula until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Slice the polenta into thin rounds about 1/8 an inch. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil from an oil mister or with cooking spray. Add polenta rounds to baking sheet and spray with oil. Top rounds with the Parmesan/Romano cheese blend. Bake for 15 minutes.

Slice the Roma tomatoes lengthwise and then into small pieces.

Once the sausage is browned, add tomatoes to the skillet and cook 2 minutes.

Add spinach to the sausage mixture and cook 2 more minutes.

Place 3-4 baked polenta rounds on a plate and top with the sausage, tomato and spinach mixture.

Better-include one element of either organic sausage, organic spinach, or homegrown/farmer’s market tomatoes.

Best-incorporate multiple elements of organic sausage, organic spinach, and homegrown/farmer’s market tomatoes.

Tonight’s dinner was the Best with organic chicken sausage, organic spinach and tomatoes grown in our backyard.  My four year old gobbled this up tonight.  This dish is also gluten free.
