I made a chicken gallantine in cooking school, and while everyone else followed the recipe, I made mine Tex-Mex. I used cornmeal in my panade, and tequila instead of brandy. Instead of smoked ham/pitaschio garnish, I used chorizo (smoked, Spanish style), and pepitas.
Yep, it was good!
As long as you don't use a whole lot of fat in a polenta and bolognese, I think it would fit into a healthy meal plan, Bigdaddy! Just have a nice salad with it and cut down on your portions.
