Polenta pie - polenta pasticciata

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 tablespoons Dried mushrooms
4½ ounce Italian-style sausages
8¾ ounce Ripe tomatoes
\N \N Salt
1 \N Onion
1 \N Carrot
1 \N Stalk celery
1¾ ounce Bacon
5¼ tablespoon Butter
14 ounces Yellow cornmeal
3 tablespoons Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano cheese

Soak the mushrooms in warm water. Peel the sausages and break them into small pieces. Wash, seed and cut the tomatoes into small pieces. Chop the onion, carrot, celery and bacon. Melt a bit of butter in a pan and lightly brown the chopped condiments. Add the mushrooms, the sausage pieces and tomatoes. Add a pinch of salt. Cook for 10 minutes over moderate heat, adding a bit of water, if necessary. Or dry white wine can be used instead.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare the polenta and butter a mold. When the mush is well-cooked, put some of it into the bottom of the mold, pour over a layer of sauce, sprinkle with grated Parmesan and dot with butter.

Continue in the same way until all of the ingredients have been used.

Finish with a layer of sauce, sprinkled with a large quantity of grated cheese and dotted with butter. Bake in a 350 F. oven until the pie has developed a golden crust.
