Cooking Instructions

For polenta:


1

Boil the water in a 2-quart, heavy saucepan. Add the salt, garlic, and cornmeal. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture pulls away from the side of the pan, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the cheeses. Pour the mixture into a 13x9-inch pan lined with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. Slice the polenta into 18 (4x1-inch) diamond-shaped strips.


For grilled vegetables:


1

Heat the broiler. Combine the vegetables in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Place the vegetables on a broiler pan. Broil, 4 to 5 inches from the heat, until crisp-tender and lightly browned, about 7 to 10 minutes. Drizzle the vinegar over the vegetables; toss to coat. Set aside.


For sauce:


1

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil in a 1-quart saucepan. Add the garlic and shallots. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the shallots are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the whipping cream. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the cream just comes to a boil, about 4 to 6 minutes. Add the gorgonzola and continue cooking, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add all of the remaining sauce ingredients; stir until well combined. Set aside.


For serving:


1

Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil in 10-inch skillet. Brown the polenta strips over medium heat, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Arrange 3 polenta strips on each plate to form a Y-shaped design. Fold 3 strips of zucchini and place them in sections between the polenta. Place the remaining grilled vegetables in the center of each plate. Spoon the warm sauce over the polenta; sprinkle with parmesan.
