Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

Plate three polenta slices, top with 1/4 of the tomato mixture and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
