  2. Whisking constantly,gradually add polenta; whisk until smooth. 
  3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer,stirring often, until polenta is thickened and smooth, 15-20 minutes. (Use a long handle spoon or whisk to avoid burns while stirring, as polenta spatters a bit.)
  4. While polenta simmers, pour oil into a 12 to 14-inch nonstick frying pan.
  5. Add onion and mushrooms, and then arrange sausages on top of vegetables.
  6. Cover pan and cook over medium-high heat without stirring until mushrooms exude juices, 7-10 minutes. 
  7. Uncover pan and cook, stirring mushrooms and turning sausages often, until all is well browned and sausages are no longer pink in center (cut to test), about 10 minutes more.
  8. Stir cheese into polenta until smoothly melted. 
  9. To serve, spoon portions of polenta onto plates and top with equal amounts for sausage and mushroom mixture.
