Creamy Polenta with Broccoli and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Main Meals | April 7, 2016 | By

Ummm, this. Is seriously good. Polenta is such a random but simple food and I feel like a lot of people don’t make it too often. But they should. Because it’s good. I came up with this dish after trying a series of different polenta dishes I have been seeing around lately, but this combo is just perfection.

As I get closer and closer to the end of my semester, I get a little crazy and want to quit and stay home all day and cook things like this. But for now that’s NOT quite an option, only a few more weeks though! And next semester is my last one…final countdown. After that it’s the home stretch to finally being a registered dietitian AND a married woman. Can’t wait!!


In the meantime, make this dish. It’s simple, filling, and totally feels like comfort food.
