Ingredients

  • 1 1-lb. tube polenta
  • 1 14-oz. tube soy breakfast "sausage"
  • 1 15-oz. can artichoke hearts, well drained
  • 1 cup marinara sauce

Preparation

1. Slice polenta into 8 1/2-inch-thick slices, and set aside. Slice soy breakfast “sausage” into 8 1/2-inch-thick slices, and set aside.

2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-low heat. Place the polenta slices into the skillet, and brown on one side for about 5 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the slices over, and brown on the second side. Remove from the skillet, and put on serving plates.

3. Spray the skillet again with nonstick cooking spray, and place the “sausage” slices into the skillet. Brown on one side for about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the slices over and brown on the second side. Remove from the skillet, and stack “sausage” slices on top of polenta slices.
