{9}       Mario Batali Creamy Polenta with Sausage and Mushrooms, submitted by Muriel,     
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 pound sweet hot Italian sausages, I used mild see note below
12 ounces Portobello mushroom caps, trimmed, cut 1/2" slices
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 cup dry red wine, see note
1 cup basic tomato sauce
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon salt, See note - use less
1 cup quick cooking polenta
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup stracchino cheese, see alternatives below
1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Note: Italian sausages. I think I would prefer the small breakfast sausage links.
Dry red wine - Think I would use all beef broth or half. Too strong of red wine.
Salt: in the polenta - I would use less. You have to salt polenta a lot, but this was a bit too much. 
stracchino cheese - can use cream cheese, or mascarpone too. 
polenta - I couldn't find instant and used regular. 
Took about 35 to 40 minutes of cooking. 
Taste and when graininess is gone, it's done. I added more water. 
Not hard to do. Need to stir often. It will plop. Be careful of burns.
For the sausages and mushroom argue. In a large sauce pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. 
Add the sausages and let brown on both sides, about 8 minutes. 
Remove browned sausages to a plate and set aside.
Add the mushrooms and cook until they have given off most of their water and are well browned, 
about 8 to 10 minutes. 
Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and cook until light golden brown, about 5 minutes. 
Add the sausages back to the pan with the wine, tomato sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. 
Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium and cook until the sauce has thickened. 
About 5 minutes. My sausages weren't quite done, so may require longer.
For the creamy Polenta: Place 5 cups water and 1 T of salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. 
Add the polenta in a think stream into the pan, whisking constantly until all polenta has incorporated 
and the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat. 
Add more hot water to the polenta to thin to desired consistency. Similar to a fondue. (This is more runny than usual). Add the butter, cheese and parmesan and stir to combine. 
Pour the creamy polenta onto a large platter. Cut the sausage links in half. 
Spoon the sausages and mushrooms onto the center of the polenta. 
Drizzle with a T of extra virgin olive oil and top with some more freshly grated parmesan.
Very filling. very good.
