1/4 of a yellow onion, sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, minced
1 link Trader Joe's Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage, sliced
1/2 of a roasted red pepper, sliced
1/2 cup drained, rinsed cannellini beans
3/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup polenta (corn meal)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (you could also use any cooked, mashed winter squash)
small handful of fresh sage and thyme, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp pecorino romano cheese or parmesan

In a nonstick pan coated with cooking spray, saute onions and garlic until onions are soft and translucent.

Add sausage, peppers, and beans, and heat through.

Keep warm while preparing polenta.

In a small saucepan, whisk together pumpkin and chicken stock and bring to a boil.

Add polenta and stir constantly with a fork until it comes together, about two minutes (be careful, it might splatter!).

Remove from heat and stir in seasonings and cheese.

Transfer to a plate and top with sausage mixture
