This week I cooked dinner with my good friend Andy. He is one of few friends who actually love to cook as well. Like most cooks, we always bicker back and forth when we cook together, thinking that our own technique is the right one. Still, it is always fun.
As shocking as it may be, until this meal I had never eaten polenta. It had been on my list of things to make for quite some time, so I am happy that I finally got to make it. Being the sauce lover that I am, and roasted tomato lover, this recipe caught my eye. My inspiration for this dish came from Emeril Lagasse. His version for this recipe used fennel, but we decided to add asparagus instead. This recipe is great for a romantic dinner, or even just to treat yourself to something delicious!
