      I'm not sure how to rate this so I'm giving it 5 stars. The polenta fingers made EVERYBODY SWOON. Wow, were these amazing. The leftovers (There was a lot) are for breakfast. The sauce did nothing for any of us (me, dh, 8 & 5 y.o.dds). Maybe a marinara dipping sauce instead?

      This is serious comfort food. I made my polenta with 1 part milk to 2 parts water, a first for me. Even with non-fat milk, it added a level of silky creaminess that was just wonderful. Counting calories so I skipped the butter and half the cheese. Beans and tomatoes were prepared as directed. I loved the use of sage as a nice change from the usual basil or oregano - used about 1/2 teaspoon in all. The polenta was a nice platform for the rustic character and flavor of the beans & tomatoes. As you can see from my pictures, forgot to make the polenta in advanced and served it with the hot unformed polenta. Secoind night, I made the fingers - both were really good, neither better than the other. Planning to make this again soon.
