Ingredients

1
package (6.6 ounces) polenta
3 1/2
cups water
1
teaspoon salt
1 1/2
teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
2
medium zucchini, coarsely chopped (3 cups)
1

1

  • 3 Heat oil in nonstick 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook zucchini in oil 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Stir in marinara sauce; reduce heat to medium. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

Tips  

Polenta is made from ground cornmeal and has been a staple of Italian cuisine for generations. It can be layered and baked, sliced and panfried or served as a side dish with a little margarine or butter.

Cook 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4-inch pieces, in oil in step 3 until no longer pink. Add zucchini and continued as directed.
