Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 lb ground beef, browned
    1.5 C diced zuccini
    1.5 C chopped mushrooms
    2 C fresh spinach
    1 diced onion
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 can diced tomatoes
    2 T olive oil
    2 T balsamic vinegar
    1 jar spaghetti sauce of choice
    1 tube of cooked polenta, sliced into 12 rounds
    12 slices fresh mozzarella

Directions

Brown meat. Dice veggies and add to meat - might need to add a little oil depending on how lean your beef is. Add spinach last and allow to wilt. Mix well. Add tomatoes, half of sauce, and balsamic. Let simmer and reduce for 20 minutes.

Pour into 11x13 inch baking dish. Top with 12 slices of polenta and a spoonful of remaining sauce on each one. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Add mozzarella slices to each polenta slice and bake and additional 10-15 min. Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.

Vegetarians can easily leave out meat or substitute tofu, eggplant, or squash.

Other possible additions: peppers, carrots, and parmesan (I didn't want the calories).

Even better the next day.
