Polenta & Vegetable Bake Recipe at
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggplant, zucchini, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and just beginning to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add water and spinach; cover and cook until wilted, stirring once, about 3 minutes. Stir marinara sauce into the vegetables and heat through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in basil.

Place polenta slices in a single layer in the prepared baking dish, trimming to fit if necessary. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup cheese, top with the eggplant mixture and sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake until bubbling and the cheese has just melted, 12 to 15 minutes. Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.

so i just broke up with my chef of a boyfriend this weekend, and i thought to myself "ive never even hardboiled an egg. i am going to starve to death." so i decided id give this vegetarian recipe a shot (less likely to undercook and poison myself, right?). for the first time in my life (im 28, so this is sad really), i cooked edible food, without using the smoke detector as a timer, and its amazing. it may have saved my life. thank you. i need to call my mother now. ;)
