This is a cookbook we received free from someone clearing out their clutter. We figured why not, we have a lot of shelving space! No not really, but a cookbook is a good thing to have around.
As I was flipping through the recipes I found a recipe based around polenta. Neither of us had ever had polenta so I figured we should at least try it out, plus it included lots of veggies.
The Recipe: Ratatouille Polenta Bake
So I chopped, sauteed, layered and baked it all up together. At the end I even topped it with some cheese, yum!
Overall we liked it, I made it Sunday night and it was gone by Tuesday. Polenta is heavy on the carbs, so it definitely isn't something that I would choose to eat a lot though it was a good experience. Next time I think I would look for a different brand of polenta, maybe something flavored, and something that wasn't in a brick form. I always thought polenta came in a tube, but all I could find was a brick of polenta.
Anyways I say- one thumb up, one thumb down.
Have you ever had polenta? Do you like it?
