Meat Sauce over Parmesan Polenta

The other day on Facebook the chef at Leon's, Edward Varipapa, posted a photo of his Spicy Quick Sauce over Creamy Parmesan Polenta. I was like, "Hey, we're having that next week!" I can only imagine how delicious his sauce was but I have to say mine was pretty tasty. The sauce was made with chopped sauteed onions, Beef, Veal and Pork which were browned along with the onions. I also added some sweet and hot sausage. San Marzano Tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil, oregano and a lot of love were added to the sauce. Nice! The sauce was made yesterday. Nothing like sauce simmering on the stove on a Sunday morning.
The polenta... well okay here I cheated. I used instant Polenta. Seriously, I am not making polenta after sitting in a car in traffic for over an hour. Nope. I love instant Polenta. We even put in under the broiler to brown up the top a bit.
We both loved this dinner, even though someone is not a huge Polenta fan. Seriously! Fine, more for me!
And we had a little leftover Chicken from last night's dinner for Archie. 
Happy Monday and may the 4th be with you!
