I bought a roll of polenta not sure what I was going to make with it. Once I got in the kitchen things just started coming together and this is the recipe I came up with. We really enjoyed it, great taste and filling.

This is an unusual dinner recipe, but boy did we enjoy it. Frying the polenta in butter makes the edges nice and crispy but keeps the middle creamy. The pork and tomato mixture gives the polenta a punch of rich flavor. This is an easy to throw together meal everyone will enjoy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
