Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Making Polenta……………

Bring water and salt to a boil in a large saucepan; pour polenta slowly into boiling water, whisking constantly until all polenta is stirred in and there are no lumps. Reduce heat to low and simmer, whisking often, until polenta starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Polenta mixture should still be slightly loose.

To Reheat: The polenta can be made ahead and reheated: add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water or stock, cover the dish, and reheat in the microwave or over low heat. Whisk well before serving. Grate a dusting of Parmesan over the top just before serving.

Sweet Corn Polenta with Bell Pepper and Tomato Salad

Wild Mushroom and Polenta Casserole
In this vegetarian polenta casserole recipe, the choice of cheese is as important as which wild mushroom you use. Morel or hen of the woods (maitake) mushrooms give a more “meaty” experience, while chanterelle or cremini mushrooms will have a milder flavor. The polenta recipe calls for rich, nutty Taleggio or fontina cheese, but you can also use a good-quality washed rind cheese like Brie or Gouda………….

Spinach and Warm Mushroom Salad
In this hearty mushroom and spinach salad recipe, sturdier “mature” spinach leaves hold up better than baby spinach when tossed with the warm mushroom-and-bacon vinaigrette……..

Spinach and Tuna Noodle Casserole
Homemade mushroom sauce kicks the can of soup out of the picture in this veggie-centric, healthy riff on a classic tuna-noodle casserole recipe. Serve with steamed green beans……..

Polenta Lasagna with Spinach

Traditional lasagna noodles are replaced with slices of firm polenta layered with a spinach-ricotta cheese mixture and an Italian tomato sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:
Polenta:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
7 cups vegetable stock
2 cups instant polenta (13.2 ounce box)
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Tomato Sauce:
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 teaspoon dry oregano leaves
1 teaspoon dry basil leaves
Salt to taste

Spinach-Ricotta Filling:
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 (15-ounce) containers low-fat ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Pinch of nutmeg

4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese – divided use
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese – divided use

Cooking Directions:
1 – Lightly spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
2 – For Polenta: In a large saucepan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute more, making sure it doesn’t brown. Add salt and stock and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat.
3 – In a thin stream very slowly add the polenta stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly to be sure it doesn’t stick, until it’s thick and creamy. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese.
4 – Pour polenta into the prepared baking dish, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula if necessary. Let polenta rest for at least 2 hours. (Can be made up to 3 days ahead however.)
5 – For Tomato Sauce: Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat; add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, wine, oregano and basil. Bring to a simmer; then simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Makes about 4 cups sauce.
6 – For Spinach-Ricotta Filling: In a medium bowl combine spinach, ricotta, egg and Parmesan, mixing well. Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
7 – Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
8 – Invert the polenta onto a cutting surface. Set the dish aside to use again. Cut the polenta rectangle in half to make 2 rectangles each measuring 9×6 1/2-inches. Slice each rectangle lengthwise in half again, using a long piece of dental floss or a serrated knife to make the job easiest, creating 4 layers (each 9×6 1/2-inches).
9 – Spoon prepared tomato sauce evenly on the bottom of the 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Place two of the polenta pieces in the dish to cover the bottom. Spoon half of the spinach ricotta mixture over the polenta, using the back of a spoon to spread it out, and then sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Spoon 2 cups of sauce over cheese.
10 – Top with remaining polenta pieces and finish with remaining cheese.
11 – Place the lasagna dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.
Makes 8 servings.

Tip: To prepare in advance the lasagna can be assembled and held up to 24 hours before baking. To cook, remove lasagna from refrigerator 1 hour before baking then cook as recipe directs.
