Number of Servings: 4


    Polenta (1 lb tube)
    1/4 cup pesto
    3 cups fresh spinach
    1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese
    1 cup tomato sauce
    1 zucchini, sliced
    1/2 cup fat free mozzarella cheese
    2oz reduced fat mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray 8x8 pan with cooking spray or use olive oil.

2. Slice polenta into 1/4 inch slices. Arrange half of the slices on the bottom of the pan. Spread pesto on top of polenta slices, then top with spinach and zucchini. Spread the cottage cheese on top of the spinach and zucchini, then cover with half the tomato sauce. Lay the remaining slices of polenta on top and cover with remaining tomato sauce.

3. Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven, add mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and broil until cheese is bubbly.

Makes 4 servings.

***I pre-crisp my polenta in a 9x13 glass pan sprayed with olive oil. I bake at 375 for 8 minutes, flip, then broil 5 minutes on each side. This is optional, but it makes the polenta a little crispy.
