Description

Creamy cheesy polenta topped with pan-cooked tomatoes and prosciutto. A wonderful way to use up ripe tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE POLENTA:
  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Quick Cook Polenta
  • 2 cups Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • Optional Garnishes: Basil Chiffonade And Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • FOR THE TOMATO AND PROSCIUTTO TOPPING:
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Small Tomatoes (like Grape)
  • ½ cups Shallots, Diced
  • ¼ cups Prosciutto, Diced
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • ½ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flake
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Then add salt. Slowly pour in the polenta in a continuous stream, stirring continuously until incorporated. Keep stirring and cook for five minutes. Then add cheese, milk, cream and a generous amount of fresh ground black pepper. Reduce heat to low and prepare tomatoes.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the rest of the topping ingredients and give it a stir. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for ten minutes.

Pour polenta onto a large serving dish and top with tomato mixture. Garnish with basil chiffonade and grated Parmesan cheese.

this was so yummy! I didn’t want to buy grape tomatoes when I had so many romas in the garden, so that is what I used. It was great!
