Mike and I have decided we love polenta. I knew this already, but I've never cooked with it - only ordered it in restaurants! We bought a tube of pre-made garlic/basil polenta last week. I tried a breakfast with it over the weekend ... it was OK, but not great - wrong combo of flavors.
But, dinner! That is another story - a yummy one! I got a brainstorm and tried it out - and it was a huge success!
First, I sliced the remaining polenta into 1/4" thick slices and put them in to fry in olive oil.
We spooned this concoction over our slices of polenta and added a bit more cheese, and there you have it... dinner! A very fast, quite simple dinner - but, oh so yummy! I WILL be making this again. I can't wait until summer for the fresh produce! We have a mushroom farm near us - their unique types of mushrooms will be so good in this too!
Now, I've gone and made myself hungry and it's a while 'til lunch!
