Prep Time
15 Minutes
Cook Time
3 Hour (s)

Time on High: 3 to 4 Hours Time on Low: 5 to 6 Hours Not your average casserole! Green beans spicy sausage, and polenta give a fresh kick to this delicious dish!


1 ½ Cups marinara sauce
1 Pound precooked polenta log, cut into ¼ inch thick rounds
8 Ounces bulk spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
1 Cup roasted red peppers, thinly sliced
8 Ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
¼ Cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


1. Spread half of marinara sauce onto the bottom of the Casserole Crock™ stoneware. Arrange polenta slices in a single layer over the sauce. Top with bits of sausage, then peppers. Spread remaining marinara sauce over peppers, making sure all the polenta is covered with sauce. Top with green beans.

2. Cover; cook on LOW 5 to 6 hours or HIGH 3 to 4 hours or until sausage is cooked through and green beans are tender. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley.

Tip: For the best results, use a marinara sauce with a thicker consistency to avoid any excess liquid in the finished casserole. If you only have thin marinara sauce on hand, use only 1 Cup.
