    Super yummy! I haven't actually had polenta before, but I see it used a lot on Food Network so I decided to try it. This was definitely a good first recipe for someone new to polenta! I didn't have all the veggies listed, so I just used a ton of baby portobella mushrooms I had, various colors of bell peppers and chicken, spinach and mozzarella sausages I had from Meijer. I'm cheap so we always use Hunt's spaghetti sauce and I also used Jaxon cornmeal mush. With everything I had it was excellent! I'm waiting for my husband and father-in-law to come home and try it!

    Wow, this was delicious. I used Bertolli® Arrabbiata Sauce, and the polenta had some basil I think. It was a real hit! Thank you!

    I increased the amount of zucchini, garlic, onion, and mushrooms and used Newman's Own marinara sauce. The veggie/meat sauce would have been great served over pasta, and I almost aborted the recipe and went with that for dinner. However, I did put it together with the polenta and found it to be OK. The texture of the creamy polenta with the flavorful, tender-crisp veggies was good, but I think that I prefer noodle lasagnas. 5 stars for the sauce...3 for the overall recipe idea.
