Cheesy polenta is pan-fried until crisp, topped with sliced tomatoes and goat cheese, then grilled and served on top of kale. This is a substantial meal. Serve with a crisp green salad.
I converted this vegetable side dish into a whole meal by adding a nice piece of grilled salmon. A very elegant presentation. The goat cheese really makes it, so don't leave it out! - 09 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum! I didn't have time to make the polenta, so I used store bought polenta and mixed in fresh corn, garlic and basil. Goes great with sweet potatoes. - 14 Sep 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was good, but I gave it fewer stars for the amount of trouble it took and the fact that a cup of cornmeal makes WAY more than two servings of polenta! I increased the amount by half and used only half of that for four people. The rest of the proportions are about correct for four people as is. The goat cheese was a nice touch. Be sure to use tasty tomatoes. - 21 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
