I also substituted veggie crumbles from Morningstar for the turkey. We only had enough polenta for the top, it was still delicious! Thank you!
WOW! WOW! I halved this recipe and cooked it in a 9" round casserole dish and made it Vegetarian... AWESOME! I changed a few things- Instead of green pepper, I chopped 2 Jalepenos, Regular oil instead of Olive, No Turkey, No diced tomatoes, just 1 thing of Medium salsa instead, and there was no need for cayenne pepper since I subbed the salsa and jalepenos for heat. Also, I didnt do the fresh tomatoes on top, and I used a Cheddar/Jack Mexican mix cheese and my Boyfriend and Mom LOVED it! I will definately make again! Thanks so much.
This was a surprisingly tasty dish! When I looked at the ingredients it didn't seem as though the end result would be anything special. I did make a few changes--so minor that I don't think it would matter. I used ground pork instead of turkey, only used 2 TB of cumin and added 1/4 tsp of ground Jalapeno powder and I left out the green pepper. I topped it with the tomato called for but also added green onions. It came out with lots of flavor and I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing.
I made this using Microwave Polenta, microwave polenta. I chilled 1/2 the polenta directly in the pie plate & 1/2 in another pan...same as Chia did. Worked really well. This recipe makes so much, I froze 1/2 for a busy night & it worked out really well. Just put 1/2 the meat/bean/spices mix in a freezer bag. After thawing, the beans were a bit more mushy but otherwise tasted great!
A dish the kids will eat always deserves five stars!
This was a lovely, healthy meal and we really enjoyed it. I only put cheese on the top rather than between each layer and used low fat cooking spray rather than oil. We'll definitely make this again! Thanks for posting!
My family likes all these ingredients so I tried it. But it's WAY too much polenta for our tastes and I didn't even use both tubes. Next time I would make thin 1/4" slices for the bottom layer, leave the polenta off the top and I would double the amount of meat from 1 pound to 2. I used ground chicken instead of turkey. Lots of leftovers from our family of 4
This was absolutely wonderful~!! I followed this recipe to a "T" except I subsituted the meat with Morningstar meal starter because I am a vegetarian. This had so much flavor, my daughter even liked it and she is super picky. I have tons left over and will eat it for lunch and dinner until it's gone! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!!
This was excellent! Very flavorful, easy,unique, and uses one of my favorite ingredients, polenta. I will add this to my regular rotation.
I agree with levicah, it is a surprisingly tasty dish. My family loved it!
