Sausage with Polenta and a Tomato, Mushroom and Aubergine Sauce

I love polenta.
It is tasty, easy and most importantly: cheap!
You can slow cook it or it can be cooked in about 10 minutes depending on the type you use (I'm not that patient so you know how it went in my kitchen).
Cook it with milk or with water or with stock or a combination of all three. And here is the kicker, you can even let it chill and then grill it later!!
Lots of potential for experimentation :-)

I served my polenta with a basic beef sausage and a hearty tomato and mushroom sauce. Basically a lot of mushrooms, tinned tomatoes, one aubergine peeled and diced, one big onion and a clove of garlic with a bit of pepper, beef stock and a dash of sugar. And grate some parmesan cheese over the polenta once you've served it if you have some!

The kids are still a bit wary of polenta but at least they have been tasting it without spitting it out and that is the first step..
