  • 1 (18-ounce) tube polenta
  • 1/4 cup virgin olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese (you may have some left over)
  • 1/4 cup whole basil leaves
  • Pinch of koser salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. 1. Remove polenta from casing, cut into ten 1/2-inch slices (cakes), and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. 2. Brush both sides of polenta cakes with oil, and set aside.
  3. 3. Heat a grill pan over high heat until hot. Lay polenta cakes in one layer on the pan; grill for 8-10 minutes on each side or until both sides are golden and crunchy and have grill marks.
  4. 4. Remove cakes from the grill pan and let cool on a wire rack. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  5. 5. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange the grilled polenta cakes on the baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce on each slice, then add 1-2 teaspoons Parmesan to each. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. 6. Garnish with basil, salt, and pepper. Serve warm.
