Polenta With Asparagus, Tomatoes and Parmesan

I had planned to share with you what we ate and drank while watching the Super Bowl, but...I'm still too bitter about the Patriots losing to talk about it. So instead, let's chat about a winning dish, shall we?

Last week, Z and I were both in the mood to stay in and have a nice dinner after work. I had found this recipe online earlier that day, which ended up being our inspiration for that night's meal. 

I mixed our polenta with some white wine, salt, pepper and dried herbs (and only cooked it on the stove top, versus grilling it after), but the rest of the recipe we basically kept the same.

The end result was a surprisingly easy, healthy dinner that was also incredibly delicious. I mean, how can you go wrong with white wine, Balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese?

Are you a polenta fan? Do you have any polenta recipes you'd like to share? I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it!


  1. Thank you for reminding me about the wonders of polenta!! I always buy the tubes at TJs... but creamy polenta is SO much better!

  2. I am a polenta fan but I never end up making it at home. I've got to remember to add this to my kitchen staples.

  3. Yes! I rarely cooked with it before, and now I'm finally appreciating how versatile and easy it is - not to mention delicious!

  4. yum! i love polenta but have never made it.

  5. Ooh I love this. Last time I had polenta it was topped with some tender short ribs, which probably isn't an idea you'll use... but maybe a hearty veggie stew on top instead?
