Recipe For Sausage and Clams With Polenta 2010-12-03 13:56:12

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup instant polenta
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    4 cloves garlic, sliced
    1 bunch broccoli rabe, florets chopped, or 1/2 head escarole, chopped
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    3/4 pound hot or sweet Italian sausages, cut into chunks
    1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
    3/4 cup dry white wine
    16 littleneck clams, scrubbed
    Chopped fresh parsley, for topping (optional)

Directions

  1. Cook the polenta as the label directs; keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and broccoli rabe, season with salt and pepper and cook until the broccoli rabe is slightly tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the sausage to the pot and cook until just brown, breaking it up with a spoon, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the wine, bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes.
  3. Add the clams; cover and cook over medium-high heat until the clams open, 5 to 7 minutes (discard any that do not open). Return the broccoli rabe to the pot and season with salt and pepper. Divide the polenta among bowls and top with the sausage-clam mixture and cooking liquid. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

Serves 4.
