I’m always looking for a recipe that will change my mind about polenta, so when I found this one on epicurious with rave reviews I was hopeful!
The sauce is a mix of cherry tomatoes, shallot (I subbed red onion), garlic (I doubled the amount), basil, olive oil, and S&P that gets baked in a little parchment packet. I was out of parchment so I just used a ceramic dish.
The polenta (I used the pre-made stuff from Trader Joe’s) is browned in the oven next to the sauce. I thought the sauce was really nice and fresh and I liked the crispy polenta, but I still don’t see the appeal, taste-wise. What are your favorite polenta recipes?
