Stella sponsored a tube of prepared polenta to the South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club as she has no idea how to use it. So, Michelle looked up for a simple Polenta Fries to be made in the kitchen.
The Polenta Fries is baked in a hot oven until golden brown and crispy on the outside. The Polenta Fries are served with a Simple Homemade Tomato Sauce.
- 1 tube (18 ounces) plain prepared polenta
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning or dried oregano

|Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Unwrap and cut the tube of polenta in half lengthwise. Then cut into half moon wedges.
Drizzle olive oil on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet.
Place polenta wedges on the baking sheet. Turn the polenta gently to coat with oil. Arrange wedges in a single layer.
Season the polenta with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle with Italian seasoning or dried oregano.
|Bake, turning once with a thin metal spatula, until golden and crisp, 45 to 50 minutes.
Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Transfer to a shallow dish before serving.
