This Polenta au Gratin features savory polenta dumplings in a sage spiced tomato sauce. Cooked under the broiler, the polenta dumplings incorporate grated parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and a touch of pepper for a savory, melty dumpling. Serve the Polenta dumplings on top of the homemade tomato sauce and garnish with fresh sage leaves and freshly grated parmesan. This Polenta au Gratin is vegetarian friendly and a good option for those with wheat sensitivities.

Ingredients

1/2 liter milk
salt
125 grams polenta (pre-cooked)
ground black pepper
ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter
olive oil
100 grams parmesan cheese (grated)
olive oil
3 garlic cloves (diced)
1 bunch sage
800 grams crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar (optional)
salt
ground black pepper

Directions

1In a high-sided pot, heat up the milk with a pinch of salt. When it starts to boil, sprinkle in the polenta. Season to taste with black pepper and nutmeg. Lower the heat and stir until thickened. Then stir in the butter.
2Lightly oil a baking tray and pour in the polenta. Smooth out until even and 1 1/2 centimeters thick. Set aside.
3Separately, in a heavy-bottomed pot, heat up a drizzle of olive oil. Add the garlic and 3 large leaves of sage. Stir and quickly add in the tomatoes, sugar, balsamic vinegar (optional), and salt and pepper to taste.
4Lower the heat and let simmer for 20 minutes until thickened. Keep warm.
5Turn on the broiler of the oven.
6Using a knife or cookie cutter, cut the polenta in pieces and place them on the baking tray lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese and black pepper and broil until golden.
7Remove the sage from the tomato sauce and plate the polenta on top of the sauce. Garnish with sage leaves.
