Wow! That's gorgeous! I've never made a polenta torta before, but I have sliced firm polenta and layered it in a casserole with tomato sauce (with or without meat), sautéed mushrooms and spinach and cheese --- like a polenta lasagna.
Thank you Larry for starting this thread. You reminded me of a recipe we haven't had in ages and one in which I can use up some of Craig's homemade red wine and garlic sausage, as well as the little bit of cream cheese and ricotta we have left over from something else (subbing out for the mascarpone in the recipe, I like a little more cheese in it) astray recipes: Polenta with sausage and tomato sauce and Garden Tomato Sauce - BigOven . On our menu for next week.
