    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    When the hubby goes out of town I love to experiment with new tastes!! This was the result of trying to use up some polenta in my fridge, and boy did it turn out heavenly.

      Wow! The ingredients in this came together to make a fantastic dish!! I skipped the feta and added a few extra capers. Thanks! Made for ZWT 7 (The Hot Pink Ladies)

      Yumm, this is very tasty. It got a "this is yummy" and "I like the pine nuts" from the hubs, so that's 5 stars in my book. I used all the ingredients (except the feta) and cooked them in the order you stated, but I took some liberties with the proportions as the recipe only serves one. Made for the April 09 veg swap.
