Layered Eggplant and Polenta Casserole
In this cheese-free version of eggplant parmigiana, eggplant slices are layered with polenta rounds and bathed in a rich tomato sauce. Serve it with baby lettuces for a vegetarian meal.
Look for precooked polenta logs in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. If using fresh plum tomatoes, peel them by scoring an X in the bottom with a paring knife and plunging them into boiling water for several seconds; transfer to an ice bath, and let cool. Slip off and discard peels and seeds.
