Crisp yet creamy polenta is a delicious base for this savory vegetable ragu. And a small amount of chicken sausage goes a long way in adding flavor.

- 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
- 1 small eggplant, peeled
- 1 1/2 cup broccoli florets

- In a large saute pan over medium-high heat add oil, mushrooms, zucchini and sausage and saute for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.
