Corn and Tomato Polenta
2 pts

4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup yellow cornmeal or polenta
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
3/4 cup whole-kernel corn, drained
1/4 teaspoon crushed hot pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a large saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil. Slowly pour the cornmeal into the saucepan, so that the water does not stop boiling. When the water is absorbed, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, heat the tomato sauce, oregano, corn, hot pepper flakes, and black pepper.

Layer half the cornmeal in an 8x8-inch pan or 1 1/2-quart casserole dish and top with half the sauce. Top with remaining cornmeal and sauce. Let stand for a few minutes. Cut in squares and serve immediately.

Yields 6 servings of 4 ounces each.
