  • Step 1

    Cook polenta according to package instructions. When polenta is cooked, take it off the heat and add thyme, pepper, fontina and olive oil, and stir until melted and very creamy; keep warm.
  • Step 2

    Heat a large, preferably nonstick, skillet and coat with cooking spray. Place the sausages in skillet and cook over medium-high heat, until brown on each side, about 5 minutes per side, then add 1/4 cup of water and cover, turning heat to medium-low. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Step 3

    Take sausages out of pan and place on a cutting board to cool. When cool, cut sausages into 1/2-inch diagonal slices.
  • Step 4

    Pour liquid out of the skillet, then add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, onions and peppers; cook over medium-high heat until softened, about 7 minutes.
  • Step 5

    Add the sliced sausages and garlic to the pan; stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Step 6

    Deglaze the pan with wine and simmer until liquid is reduced to just a few tablespoons.
  • Step 7

    Spoon polenta onto plates, top with the sausage mixture, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
