    DreamoBway's Note:

    This is an adaptation of ClareVH's "Soft Oven Polenta". I feel it gives the polenta that extra Italian flair. Hearty all on it's own as a vegetarian dish (with the vegetable broth, of course) but also great as a side dish.

      I like the recipe but I tweaked it a bit. I cooked the base for the polenta for thirty minutes and then added chopped onion, tomatoes, ricotta, parmesan, and the spinach and baked for another 25 minutes. Turned out perfect.

      A nice side although using only half the spinach would have been more than enough. This was made as written. Thanks for the post.

      Amazing recipe! I halved the spinach and added some pre-cooked sausage for added protein. My Gluten-Free tummy totally enjoyed it, and my non-gluten-free roommate asked if I could make it again! This is definately a repeat!!
