Goat Cheese Polenta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MNLisaB

This is an unusual appetizer that calls for goat cheese and oil packed sun dried tomatoes-very trendy but not too putzy to put together. It's pretty tasty.

This was a very good recipe. I served it as an entree and I used sun-dried tomatoes that were not packed in oil because I thought the goat cheese was rich enough, and based on my opinion anyway it was the right choice. When I mixed the cheese in with the warm polenta my BF was wowed by how great it smelled but was a little less enthusiastic when it warmed to room temperature (about 20 minutes later). Next time I might try serving it while it's still warm.
