    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned; drain. Add zucchini, beans, tomatoes, basil, rosemary and 3/4 cup of the cheese; stir gently. Spoon into casserole.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat eggs slightly with fork. Crumble polenta into eggs; mix well. Spoon polenta mixture evenly over sausage mixture; spread evenly.
  • 4
    Bake uncovered about 25 minutes or until sausage mixture begins to bubble around edges and polenta is firm to the touch.

    Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over top; bake about 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • You can make the sausage mixture up to a day in advance and spoon it into the casserole; cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to bake, uncover and continue as directed, increasing the bake time to about 30 minutes.
