POLENTA TART WITH SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS

Today we are happy to present you on our blog, the third recipe of the talented Ketty Bonomo (kettycucinooggi on instagram).

The polenta tart with sausage and peppers is a tasty idea to bring to the table, a unique dish that will make the whole family happy.

I love experimenting and trying out new recipes in the kitchen, like this polenta tart that I am proposing today, an original and perfect way for Sunday lunch.

It is a satisfying single dish, because it is not only good for the eyes, but also for the palate.

The preparation is very simple, all you have to do is cook the polenta, once it is ready and still fluid, pour it into a smart tart mould.

For the filling I used sausage, peppers and scamorza cheese, so try to imagine how good this dish is.

A unique second course that combines a soft polenta with a colourful, mouth-watering filling, all au gratin in the oven.

I’ve had this recipe in mind for some time and I wanted to try it with Btaly polenta, and indeed it was the right choice.

You know that to make a great dish you always need a good raw material, so I opted for Ottofile maize.

A very old variety native to the valleys of Piedmont, it is a particularly sweet flour with an authentic flavour and an intense aroma.

The result is a succulent dish, to be enjoyed piping hot, in which the rustic notes of the wholemeal polenta meet the strong flavours of the filling.

The polenta tart with sausage and peppers will, I assure you, conquer even your most traditionalist guests!
