Tomato basil sauce with polenta

16 Sep

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?
