This is my ultimate comfort food. Tomato, basil, cheese and polenta with garlic and onions....I'm the only one in my family who likes polenta so I don't make it very often because I'd eat the whole thing in 2 days. I first made this 2 weeks before my due date with our last child when my friend was coming to visit. She now makes it as well. She uses 2 tubes of the already made polenta (tomato and basil flavor) and just layers the cheese in between for a faster meal. Adapted from Simple Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin. She is one of my ultimate favorite cookbook authors. Approximate cooking times.
