Polenta with Summer Veggies

by jrmac37

I mixed a few different recipes to come up with this one…

1 roll pre-made polenta
oil for pan frying
veggies (zucchini, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant…whatever you have on hand)
jar of pasta sauce
cheese of your liking (we used a sharp cheddar)

sautee veggies to however you like your veggies cooked.  slice polenta and pan-fry according to directions.  heat pasta sauce.  plate polenta, top with some cheese, veggies and sauce.

listen, sometimes we all need a simple recipe and sometimes fluffing up the recipe with a lot of directions just doesn’t seem needed.  if you want to use fresh polenta (which i highly recommend and avoid frying), then do it! it would be delicious and probably save some calories.  if you want to use frozen veggies and save time, feel free!  my husband actually mentioned that after eating this, he’d be able to go vegetarian, so take that for what it’s worth (seeing as how he just ate at Lawry’s Prime and got the prime rib special…this means a lot).  seeing as how i’ll be making this again, i’ll be sure to take a picture and post it.
