This was great. Pulled to use up excess celery and took advantage of other reviewers suggestions and served over polenta with some goat cheese. An easy and healthful dinner. BF loved it too. The only thing I did differently was to use dried basil because BF doesn't like the taste of fresh, and used about two cups diced tomato (one 15 1/2 ounze can) to add moisture for the polenta. I'd make this again.
