Baked polenta with tomato souce.

I just love the grilled polenta with some grilled veggies, Italian sausage and feta cheese, but I don’t always have the time for BBQ, so this post is all about the baked polenta and very quick tomato sauce, hassle free and time saving recipe.

You’ll need:
18 ounces of packaged polenta (one cylinder)
2 table spoons of olive oil for coating
Vegetable seasoning or other on your choise
Salt/pepper
For tomato sauce:
1 can of diced tomatoes (I used Italian seasoned), drained
1/2 tea spoon Tabasco sauce
1 table spoon of soy sauce (you can add more if you like)
1 table spoon of Woscestershire sauce
Any vegetable seasoning on your choice

How to make: 
Polenta. 
Slice polenta into thin slices (1/4 or 1/3 inch). Coat each side with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and vegetable seasoning. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put in preheated oven 400F for 15-20 minutes.
Make sure that edges won’t burn, your polenta should be crispy outside and soft inside.
Tomato sauce:
Preheat the pan on medium to low, add drained diced tomatoes. Leave for 7 minutes, then mix together with Tobasco, Woscestershire, soy sauces, add seasoning and stir for another 15 minutes until it will be thicker.
Tip: always try the food you make, in case if it’s not salty enough or you like more pepper you can add it in the process of cooking. Same with baking – try a piece before thinking that if it’s been 20 minutes it’s cooked, some ovens differ from others so it may happen that you’ll need less or more time for cooking.
Serving:
On the plate place baked polenta (as many slices as you like) and top with tomato sauce. In addition you can add feta cheese and baked/grilled chicken. Enjoy!

    This looks so good. I like pan seared polenta.
