Polenta masquerades as noodles

Last night about 10 p.m. I remembered I was supposed to make a polenta lasagna for today. I almost forgot. Good thing it didn't take long to prepare — less than 45 minutes. It has premade polenta as it's noodles and a faux sausage, zucchini, red bell pepper, and onion as it's filling. It was supposed to have mushrooms, but meh, I forgot to buy them and blew my food budget this week. And, if I was buying anything in between trips, it would be batteries for my camera.. not measly old mushrooms.

I will give you a warning though, that faux meat smells nasty cooking in the pan. Seriously kinda gross. I had to plug my nose. I think if I do this again I'll just use ground turkey or maybe some lean ground beef. I should like how it smells while cooking. I just knew there was a reason I didn't like faux meat products — besides of course, that they are processed and unnatural.

Tomorrow I'm making steak fajitas and I'm so excited for them I could pee myself. I heart Mexican food.
