Ingredients Nutrition


  1. ROASTED RED PEPPERS: Broil red peppers, turning often, until charred, 15 minutes. Let cool. Peel off blackened skins. Core, seed and thinly slice; place in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with oil, vinegar and salt; toss. Stir in basil. Set side.
  3. In large saucepan, bring 4 cups water and salt to boil; reduce heat to low. Gradually whisk in cornmeal; cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes.
  4. Add corn; cook until tender-crisp and polenta is thick enough to mound on a spoon, 5-10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Spread in greased 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Let cool until set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Cut polenta into 12 squares. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until marked, about 8 minutes. Served topped with red peppers.
