Fresh Tomato and Polenta Cakes
Starting with ready to use polenta makes this a quick and delicious meal.!

Serves 4

• 8 slices fresh Florida tomatoes, (1/2-inch thick slices)
• 8 slices ready-to-use polenta, (1/2-inch thick slices)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 8 fresh basil leaves
• 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
• 2 teaspoons dried oregano

Use tomatoes held at room temperature until fully ripe. In a 2-quart microwavable baking dish arrange half the polenta rounds. Top each round with a basil leaf then a tomato slice; sprinkle tomato slices with half the salt, grated Parmesan and dried oregano, dividing evenly. Repeat layering. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) until tomatoes are tender and polenta is heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to individual serving plates; garnish with arugula and a drizzle of prepared reduced fat pesto, if desired.
