Microwave Polenta with Chunky Meat Sauce
Yield: 6 servings

175 g polenta
250 ml cold water
1 teaspoon salt
750 ml boiling water
450 g lean minced beef, or Italian turkey sausage
2 spring onions, sliced
1 475 g can creamed sweetcorn
1 small green pepper, cut into strips
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 50 g jar pimento, drained

In a 2 litre casserole dish combine the polenta, cold water, and
salt. Slowly pour boiling water into the polenta mixture, stirring
constantly until the mixture is well blended. Cook uncovered on
100% power (HIGH) in the microwave for 6-8 minutes or until very
thick, stirring every minute. Grease a 30 x 18 x 5 cm baking dish.
Spread the polenta in the dish. Cover and cool for at least 45
minutes or chill overnight.

In a 2 litre casserole dish combine the meat and onions. Cook,
covered, on HIGH for 5-7 minutes or until no pink meat remains,
stirring once. Drain and put the mixture aside. In the casserole
dish combine the corn, green pepper, Italian seasoning, and pepper.
Cook, covered, on HIGH for 5-6 minutes or until the green pepper
is just tender. Stir in the meat mixture and pimento.

Cut the polenta into 24 squares and arrange on a platter. Cook,
covered with wax paper, on 70% power (MEDIUM-HIGH) for 4-5 minutes
or until heated through. Transfer to serving plates. Cook the
meat mixture, covered, on HIGH for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes or until hot.
Serve with the polenta slices.
