Ingredients:

  • pork ribs or bacon
  • sausages
  • homemade tomato sauce
  • 1 onion
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • fennel seeds
  • corn flour
  • salt

Cooking time: about 40 minutes for “polenta” and 45 minutes for the meat sauce (It takes time but the outcome is sensational!)

Preparation:

In a large saucepan brown the pork ribs or the bacon together with the chopped onion.
Add the fennel seeds and a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, remove the skin of the sausage and crumble it over a saucepan. Then add the extravirgin olive oil and put over fire. When the sausage is browned, add it in the pan where the pork ribs/bacon are cooking.Then add the homemade tomato sauce and stir well.

The cooking time is around one hour. Stir occasionally.

The polenta preparation

Take a large pan full of  warm water.
Grab a fistful of flour and let it drop slowly. Repeat it until you’ve finished up all the corn flour. Add some salt.
Cook on low heat and keep stirring very often.

Halfway through cooking time, take some sausage sauce and add it to the polenta. Keep stirring. Cook the polenta for about 40 minutes.

When the polenta is cooked, take a large wood board and pour the polenta over it.
Then add on top the sausage and ribs sauce and sprinkle with some grated Parmesan cheese.

And the dish is ready. Place the wooden board in the middle of the table and enjoy the polenta all together with your family and friends!
