Saute the onions in a skillet with cooking spray for 3-5 mins. Then add the peppers and garlic and continue to saute for 6-8 mins until they become soft. If they begin to burn, add a little water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the casing from the Sausage and slice into rings. Add to the peppers and onions and cook abou 5 mins for the flavours to combine and for the sausages to heat through. Set aside 1/3 for lunch later in the week.

Meanwhile in a small pot, combine the polenta, broth, milk and pinch of salt. Whisk together and bring to a simmer. Continue stirring for 5 mins. Season with Salt and Pepper.

Serve the Sausages and Peppers over the polenta.
