Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 ounces, weight Diced Pancetta
  • 1 bulb (Small Size) Fennel, Diced, Leafy Tops Reserved For Garnish
  • 1 whole Sweet Potato, Peeled And Diced
  • 2 whole Small Yellow Squash, Diced
  • ½ whole Onion, Diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Diced Tomatoes In Their Juices
  • 2 cups Chicken Or Vegetable Stock, Plus More If Needed
  • 1 package (Approximately 18 Oz. Size) Prepered Polenta In A Tube, Cut Into 8 Rounds
  • Seasoning Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper

Preparation

Place half of the butter in a large skillet with the pancetta over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until crispy and fat is rendered, then remove the pancetta to a small dish with a slotted spoon.

Into the same skillet with pancetta drippings, add the fennel (reserve the leafy top for garnish) and sweet potato. Stir, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the squash, onion, and garlic. Stir to combine the veggies and cook for 5 more minutes to soften them slightly.

Add the diced tomatoes in their juices and the chicken stock. Increase the heat to medium-high, and let the ragout bubble for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the stock has reduced and the veggies are very tender. Taste, and add salt and pepper to your preference. If the sauce seems very dry, add more stock as needed.

While the ragout simmers, add the remaining butter and a sprinkle of seasoned salt and cayenne pepper into the bottom of a separate skillet. Turn the heat to medium, and when the butter melts add the polenta rounds in one layer. Sprinkle the tops of the rounds with more seasoned salt and cayenne pepper. Cook the polenta for 7 minutes on each side or until golden and crispy, turning once.

Serve by spooning some of the ragout into a bowl, topping with some polenta rounds, and garnishing with pancetta and the reserved fennel fronds. Enjoy!
