Italian Sausage & Bean Stew With Polenta

beans & legumes, soups & stews, sausage & processed meats

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 pound italian-style turkey sausage
1/2 cup dry white wine
29 ounces diced tomatoes with basil
--garlic and oregano; undrained
30 ounces cannellini beans; drained and rinsed
salt & freshly ground black pepper; to taste
16 ounces prepared polenta
--cut into 1/4-inch slices

1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up clumps with a wooden spoon, until no pink remains, about 3 minutes. 2. Add wine and stir, scraping up any browned bits. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 6 minutes. Stir in beans, reduce heat to low and simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Meanwhile, brush remaining 1 teaspoon oil over bottom of large cast-iron skillet (preferably one with ridges) and heat pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook polenta slices until crusty, about 3 minutes per side. 4. Divide polenta slices among 4 plates and spoon stew over the top. Serve immediately.

Makes 6 cups stew, for 4 servings.
