Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why do people rate recipes that they haven't even made? Why do people rate recipes that they haven't even made? It makes no sense to me and makes the overall rating inaccurate. Anyway...This was quite good! My only issue is the crazy dominating veggies-to-polenta ratio. We *love* vegetables, but this makes way too much. I ended up using the extra alongside grilled chicken breasts and still have some leftover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was very yummy. This was very yummy. I used green pepper, mushrooms, onions, zucchini and fresh tomatoes. Fresh veggies are the best. It was so tasty I forgot to put the cheese on top. It is a very satisfying dish. It would be good with cooked chicken added too!
