Ingredients
1 pkg. Hillshire Farm Beef Smoked Sausage
1 tube (16 ounces) polenta, cut into 12 slices
2 green bell peppers, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut sausage in half lengthwise, then cut into 1/4" slices; set aside.

Lightly grease a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place polenta slices on sheet and bake 20 minutes. Top each polenta round with a tomato slice; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 4-5 minutes longer or until cheese starts to melt.
