Roasted Veggies With Polenta My Way

Jo Zimny


This recipe was inspired by Giada Delaurentis but I have changed some of the ingredients to accommodate what I had on hand in my kitchen. A combination of your favorite veggies is all you need to prepare. The polenta is so creamy and delicious. I also added some extra ingredients to it as well.
