Meatless Monday - Tomato Alfredo Polenta



We all have them. The cheats, the meals that we throw together, using ready made ingredients. Well, this is one of mine. It is so quick, but so yummy. I take a tube of ready made polenta and slice it into thick rings. I fry it in a cast iron skillet, on both sides,  until it is a little crispy. I pour half a small jar of my favorite marinara sauce over the polenta. Next, I pour about a 1/3 of a cup of vegan creamer over the top. Sprinkle on some vegan cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the sauce thickens and it gets all bubbly. Serve with some salad and a crispy baguette. 
Somehow, when the red sauce and the creamer get together they effortlessly create this super delicious creamy tomato-y Alfredo-y yumminess.

This sounds divine! Thanks for the recipe. Sometimes quick-fixes are the tastiest meals. I kind of wish I didn't already have dinner started tonight...so I could make this instead. :D

Lol ~ I'm guessing that everyone who cooks with any regularity has a dish (or two) like this! Something, quick, easy and nutritious! :)

This sounds YUMMY! I just saw some polenta in the grocery store and bypassed it cause I couldn't think of how I'd make it this time. Now it's back to the store so I can try this recipe... thanks!
