    1 tube polenta, sliced into 12 slices
    Cooking Spray
    Salt and pepper
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    2 cloves garlic
    2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
    1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
    1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
    Handful fresh basil, chopped
    Handful freshly shredded parmesan


Preheat broiler. Place polenta slices in pan, spray with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Broiler for 7-8 minutes, or until warm and slightly crisp.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and tomatoes. Cook until garlic is soft and tomatoes are soft—about 4 minutes. Add beans and vinegar. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. Remove from heat, add basil and salt and pepper to taste.

    This was pretty good, not great, not sure if it's worth all the hoopla, but it was pretty good for the calorie count. - 9/10/18
