Ready in: Level: Medium
Prep: Cook: Yields: 6 Servings


  • 4 1/2 c low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 c water
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • 1 c coarse-ground cornmeal
  • 1 c Stonyfield Organic Plain Nonfat Yogurt
  • 2/3 c grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 red pepper (seeded and finely chopped)
  • 8 oz sweet or hot Italian turkey sausage
  • 2 can artichokes packed in water (drained and chopped)
  • 3 T flour
  • 1/4 t black pepper


Step 1

Bring 3 cups of the broth and the water to a boil in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the baking soda. Pour cornmeal into saucepan in a slow, steady stream, while whisking. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Step 2

Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for about 25 minutes without stirring or until cornmeal is thickened and tender.

Step 3

Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup of the yogurt and 1/3 cup of the Parmesan cheese; keep warm and set aside.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and red pepper to pan and cook 4 minutes or until softened. Crumble sausage into pan and cook, stirring often for 4 minutes or until no longer pink. Add artichokes to pan and cook 2 minutes.

Step 5

Stir flour in and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Whisk in remaining 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper and cook over high heat for 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Step 6

Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes; stir in remaining 1/2 cup yogurt until well blended. Serve immediately with polenta.
