  • Summary

    I turn to polenta when I am in need of some good, old-fashioned comfort food. I suspect it’s because there is not much difference between polenta and the grits I was raised on in North Florida. This simple dish relies once again on my favorite tomato sauce and not much else other than freshly cooked polenta made better than ever with a little added ricotta.

    Ingredients

    • 4 tomatoes
    • 1 medium yellow onion, skin on
    • 1 small bulb garlic
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Salt
    • 1 cup polenta
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
    • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 4 tablespoons chopped basil
