    FloridaNative's Note:

    This sounded very yummy, all the right ingredients for our tastes, though I haven't cooked with polenta yet. goes! From 'Fitness' magazine, September 2008. NOTE: This recipe calls for mushrooms, which I hate, but being true to the recipe as written, I have included them here. But I won't use them ever...

      Delicious! I didn't have the polenta rounds, I made cooked polenta instead and just poured it in the bottom of the casserole dish, then piled the cooked vegetables and shredded cheese on top. Came out perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Made for ZWT8.
