      This is a good base recipe, but I feel like it needs a little tweaking. The veggies turned out very flavorful - the instructions don't say what to do with the garlic clove or the olive oil, so I sliced two medium sized garlic cloves with the veggies, then used olive oil spray to coat them evenly during roasting. I also added half a red bell pepper, yum! The polenta was very creamy, but needed some seasoning. I added about a teaspoon of kosher salt, but we felt like it still needed something... Unfortunately, I was out of parmesan for sprinkling on top, I'm sure that would have added to the great flavor in the veggies.

      This dish was a hit, but did require a few alterations on my part. Following the advice of another reviewer, I used a red, orange, and yellow bell pepper instead of asparagus, since I couldn't get organic asparagus. I added an extra clove of garlic as well. When these veggies are more in season, I could see using asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, you name it, it would taste good in this recipe! I don't usually like zucchini, but this way, it was good, and I'm glad I tried it. I also used regular sugar for the dressing. Now, the polenta is really where I expanded on the recipe, since some reviews stated it was bland. I used BOTH basil and rosemary, dried, 1/2 teaspoon of each; added two small-ish cloves of garlic, minced; threw in a few decent sized pinches of parmesan cheese; increased the salt to 1/2 teaspoon; and used 2% milk. Believe me, it was NOT bland! It tasted fantastic. Put together, it served as a light dinner for two hearty appetites, and will go into my keeper file. =) Thanks for posting!
