    I love polenta! When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I eventually grew tired of ice cream (the horror!) and my husband made a big batch of cheesy polenta. I like it with olives and a little hot sauce 🙂

      I love it too! It’s been too long since I’ve had it. I might need to make it again.

    I like polenta, but haven’t had it in ages!! And the creamy polenta with goat cheese link? I agree. You had me at goat cheese.

    so often I just saute a bunch of veggies and throw them over polenta and call it dinner! It is really one of my favorite ingredients to cook with!

    I have a great vegetarian cookbook by Jeanne Lemlin, and got this recipe from it:

    the idea is:
    1) make some polenta
    2) saute some greens (I added tomatoes)
    3) put half the polenta in the bottom of a baking dish, then the greens (/tomatoes), then the rest of the polenta
    4) bake. You’ll have a dish of layered goodness when it’s done.

    If you do it, be sure you use a slotted spoon with the greens (/tomatoes) so it’s not too liquid.

    Makes a bunch of leftovers too! You could add beans or even meat if you want – it’s very versatile.

      What a great idea! I love this. Kind of a faux gluten-free “lasagna” idea.
