Serves 4 (serving size: 1 polenta slice and about 1 cup sauce)

Thanks to its firm consistency, precooked polenta (usually sold in tube form) can be seared, toasted, or even layered and baked like a lasagna. We keep the slices on the thick side so they have a creamy texture when heated through. A little ground turkey goes a long way in this dish; stir the rest into chili, make burger patties, or use as a filling for lettuce cups. In addition to mushrooms, this dish is a great canvas for any vegetables you have on hand, such as sliced greens or chopped cauliflower or broccoli.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler with oven rack in top position.

Step 2

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet over medium-high. Add polenta slices; cook slices 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove pan from heat.

Step 3

Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Add turkey; cook 7 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic; cook 6 minutes. Stir in marinara sauce, oregano, and vinegar; cook 5 minutes. Pour turkey mixture over polenta in skillet. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over pan. Place pan in oven; broil 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.
