1 18 oz. package (tube) polenta (I use a sundried tomato and garlic variety, but you can use plain or any other flavor you like)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
10 oz. ground turkey
1 26 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
spices to taste
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
DirectionsPreheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
Cut polenta into 1/4-inch slices (about 18 rounds).
Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat.
Add garlic and cook about 30 seconds, just until fragrant.
Add green peppers and stir, cooking about 2 minutes.
Add ground turkey and cook 5-8 minutes until no longer pink.
Add spaghetti sauce and any spices desired (such as oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, etc.). Mix well, lower heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Place 1/2 of polenta rounds in the bottom of greased baking pan. Spread 1/2 of turkey/sauce mixture over polenta, then sprinkle with 1/2 of mozzarella. Repeat polenta, sauce and mozzarella cheese layers.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Sprinkle on Parmesan cheese and bake another 5-8 minutes until all cheese is fully melted.
Let sit at least 5 minutes before serving.
