Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove the cornmeal mush from the package and slice ½ inch thick. Remove the core and cut the peppers into 1-inch cubes. Peel and cut the onion into 1-inch cubes. Trim the ends from the rapini.

Toss the peppers and onions with 2 teaspoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Spread onto one side of a foil-lined or non-stick sheet pan. Place 4 sausages next to the peppers and place in oven.

Toss the rapini with 2 teaspoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Place on one side of a second foil-lined or non-stick sheet pan. Coat the polenta slices with 2 teaspoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Spread onto the other side of the sheet pan. Place in the oven. Roast until the sausages are cooked through.* Toss the sausage, peppers, and onions with the tomato sauce and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
