    Really delicious and easy to prepare! The tomatoes caramelized and were sweet and tender. This was also the best polenta I've ever had---fluffy and creamy at the same time.

    This is an amazing dish--easy, beautiful, delicious! Although it requires a bit of time, it is pretty much a foolproof, set-it-and-forget-it type of recipe. I have made this with grape tomatoes, which are smaller than cherry tomatoes and roasted them for the same amount of time specified in the recipe. I also halve the recipe, and it serves 3-4 perfectly. Every time I make it, it turns out great, and looks better than the picture.

    My only complaint... The polenta could use more flavor. Next time, I will probably mix the cheese in the to the polenta while it's still on the heat and add some more seasoning.

    Must mean instant polenta. Polenta takes 20+ minutes to cook normally

    Great served as the main component of a dish with several veggie sides!
