June/July 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (43 votes)

Creamy Gorgonzola polenta (Italian cornmeal “porridge”) is topped with a tender squash sauté for a complete vegetarian meal. Once you know how easy polenta is to make, you may want to experiment with other Italian-style sauces and toppings. Make it a meal: Serve with crusty garlic bread and a garden salad.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Blah. The polenta didn't set up (you might try baking it) and the zucchini mixture had zero flavor. Skip this one. "

Great with a little added salt/pepper

This was an easy meal for me to make and it was surprisingly filling! I actually added some cooked shrimp in the last couple minutes of cooking the vegetables and it added some depth to the dish. Once it was all plated my husband and I sprinkled some extra salt and pepper on and it was delicious!

Quick, easy, & healthy meal

Don't skip this recipe. I added some thyme and tarragon and increased the pepper. You could add any veggies. I used up a small eggplant with the squash. This looks like it's intended to be a soft polenta dish. To make firm polenta, spread it in a baking dish, cover with plastic wrap to prevent it from forming a film, and refrigerate it, unless you like it soft. I think it's yummy.
