Sausage Polenta Bake

2 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal/polenta
1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
4 cups boiling water
4 cups warm raw grass-fed milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 lb ground sweet/spicy sausage
1 (26oz) jar or homemade spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

1. In a large saucepan, combine polenta & salt. Gradually add in boiling water, whisking constantly. Then add warm milk slowly while whisking. Continue to cook and stir over medium heat for another 5-8 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil and expands. Remove from the heat. Whisk in grated parmesan cheese thoroughly.

2. Spread polenta equally between TWO - 13x9 greased baking dishes (I used coconut oil). Bake uncovered in a 350 degree F oven for 20-25 min or until "set". Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and add sauce. Cook until heated through.

3. Spread sausage/sauce mixture over ONE of the polenta baking dishes. Top with shredded mozzarella. Bake BOTH dished another 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
