Recipe Directions for sam's polenta with roasted vegetables

  2. Bake 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking. Add tomatoes; stir. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender and most of liquid has evaporated. Let stand 5 minutes; stir.

  3. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, mix cornmeal and 3/4 cup water. Stir in 3 1/4 cups boiling water and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils; reduce heat.

  4. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very thick; remove from heat. Stir until smooth. Serve tomato sauce over polenta.

  5. High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): After stirring in tomatoes, bake 20 to 25 minutes.
